General Mountaineering Seminar - 8 Days

climbdemon pictureEducation is the prime directive for this mountaineering course. We will focus on learning the skills necessary to undertake full-scale Alaskan expeditions. This adventure incorporates teaching the primary techniques of: equipment selection and use, glacier travel technique, snow and ice climbing skills and crevasse rescue. Throughout the expedition participants learn about personal skill recognition, hazard assessment and judgement building. Toward the end we'll apply our skills on a graduation climb. Good physical conditioning and personal motivation is required.
