Throughout the course,‚ clients will learn basic ice climbing skills on low ...grade and high grade ice slopes.

The course progreses in an organized and timely fashion under the professional supervision of our instructors. A new and different location will be chosen for each outing‚ giving clients a fuller comprehension and appreciation for ice climbing in Korea.
The final session finishes off with a day trip to the outskirts of the northern GyeongGi Province for a three pitch climb up a natural ice fall topped off with plenty of top-roping to finish off the day!
