    Two day clinics are filling up fast! Each of these clinics are run Friday-Saturday and Saturday-Sunday, and are a great opportunity to get skills dialed Ice Fest weekend. Call the IMCS - International Mountain Climbing School office to sign up! (603)356-7064

    LEARN TO LEAD: Leading is very rewarding but can also be dangerous and scary if you are not prepared technically, physically and mentally. The course covers advanced anchor & belay systems, racking of gear, rope management, and route finding while on a multi-pitch climb. Day two will deal with placing screws from awkward stances, using alternate protection systems, and focusing on protecting the climb, not the move. We will cover advanced anchor & belay systems, single and double rope management, descending options and route finding while on multi-pitch climbs. Sponsored by Outdoor Research.

    GLACIER TRAVEL AND CREVASSE RESCUE: This two-day intensive course will cover the skills of knots, friction hitches, roped travel techniques, self arrest, snow and ice anchors and extrication techniques. This practical “nuts and bolts” course will focus on developing the skills you will need to safely move over glaciers and around crevasses.

    Angela VanWiemeersch will be presenting Friday evening this year at Ice Fest! We're stoked to check out her presentation full of images and video of her climbing exploits in incredibly diverse landscapes. She'll be sharing her climbing experiences on everything from super committing desert ice in Zion, to remote Lake Superior ice, the Cairngorm Plateau and beyond. Thanks Grivel for sending Angela our way! She will be guiding clinics Saturday and Sunday!!

    We're so psyched to have our friends at Boogalows Island BBQ back at Ice Fest serving up their authentic Caribbean BBQ again this year! We dream about fried plantains all year! "Bites" from the food truck are included in your clinic registration (no hangry folks allowed!), and they will also have a full menu at Theatre in the Wood for the evening events, and Apres at IME, for purchase.
