The Adirondack Mountains host some of the best ice climbing in the northeastern states and attracts climbers from all over the world.

Our professional guides will teach you everything from the basics of tool placement and crampon footwork to advanced techniques for steep ice and mutli-pitch climbing.

All courses include professional guided instruction, equipment rentals, and scenic views! A required (basic) equipment list is available and may be printed from our web site. Conditions may be variable due to weather and visitor popularity; safety is our paramount priority. All guides hold NYS licenses and have wilderness first aid training.


In this introductory 1 day course to beginning ice climbing, fundamental ice climbing skills will be taught in a top-roping lesson. Participants will learn the basics with our experienced guides, climb on a frozen waterfall, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the region.
