Hard Ice

Climb next level routes with your partners in the mountains.

Make the bold move to swing your tools with us on routes like Bridalveil, Bird Brain Boulevard or The Talisman

We will tackle some classic ice routes that make the San Juans a prime ice climbing destination.

A “warm-up day” cragging at Ouray Ice Park or Camp Bird on objective-specific prep lines can be added to the front end of your trip.

Ready yourself for big mountain objectives like The Mooses Tooth or Mt. Huntington in AK, Cholatse in Nepal, Alpamayo in Peru, etc

Our guides’ knowledge of The San Juans will assure you the best ice conditions on the selected routes.
