Welcome to the CTT Ice Climbing video series. Here we cover critical skills for climbing frozen waterfalls, ascending mixed ice & rock terrain, and becoming a well-rounded alpinist.
Ice climbing is considered is an advanced climbing discipline. Before viewing this series, you should work through our Sport Climbing, Traditional Climbing, and Multi-Pitch Trad Climbing videos… plus our Alpine & Mountaineering series, as well as our requisite Anchor Building, Belaying, and Rappelling videos.
Take it slower when learning to ice climb than you would with rock climbing. We advocate spending a lot of time top roping before leading because taking a leader fall with all those sharp objects is a scary prospect—and the solidity of ice can be harder to read than granite or limestone.
Let’s get started! Our Ice Climbing video series is below. Be careful, and have fun!
