Our Alpine Training day is a perfect way to get some exposure to the skills and terrain needed to climb one of our technical 14,000 ft peaks. You will experience climbing on moderate alpine rock with exposure, and use different rope work techniques that are appropriate for 3rd to easy 5th class terrain. In late Spring and early Summer, the peaks are best climbed with crampons and axes. We can instruct crampon technique, self-arrest skills, snow protection and anchor techniques typically from mid April to early June.
Typical objectives for an Alpine Training day may include climbing 13,000' Petite Bleu - a beautiful granite buttress that sits above Lincoln Lake high on Independence Pass; the Geissler Peaks - 13,000' summits easily accessed from the top of Independence Pass; or snow skills training off of Independence Peak.
Duration for this day is typically 6-8 hours. No experience necessary!
