Join GO-Adventures and Alpine Inspirations for an Ice Climbing Adventure in the Catskills of New York!

This one-day introductory course covers all the basics, from how to stay warm to how to best use your tools and crampons to climb efficiently and naturally. We’ve scouted out some fun routes for both the novice and experienced ice climber, and with a low guide to participant ratio, you’ll get plenty of chances to hone your skills with tools and crampons. The AICS guides are masters at getting your skills up to par – fast. You’ll climb a lot, for in this sport more than most, practice makes perfect AND practice keeps you warm!
