Activity description

This is it, the last step in mastering ice climbing! Matthias Wurzer will polish your ice climbing skill so you can face more challenging walls near Lienz!

Osttirol is one of the most well-known ice climbing places in Austria and among all the climbing community because of its many mountains and its cold winters!

After going through a beginner and an intermediate ice climbing courses, you've already gained some experience as an ice climber. By now, you already know how to keep your harness, cords, and helmet and all safety equipment in good shape. Also, you must already know how to properly use an ice ax, or piolet, your weatherproof boots with crampons to make your way up.

This 2-day advanced ice climbing course will expand your spectrum to include multi-pitch routes. Matthias' expertise will help you identify the right icefalls. Since you've already have been taught how to use your equipment, in this course the skills will only be polished and your coach will give you tips and in order for you to grow in confidence.

The Level 3, or advanced ice climbing course will firstly be focussed on ice climbing techniques, handling the safety equipment and assessing an icefall. This is the last course that any member of IceGuides provides and forges a beginner ice climbing into a capable multi-pitch ice climber.
