Join Icicle Mountaineering’s popular fast-track course that is designed to make you more autonomous in the Alps.
You are based in Chamonix, and the week includes accommodation and 5 days IFMGA mountain guiding. There is a real focus on climbing in some of the most stunning areas of the Mont Blanc massif, as well as learning skills that will be useful in your climbing after the course. The course culminates in the ascent of a quiet and remote summit, such as the traverse of the Domes du Miages. The technical content will be tailored to build on your current experience, with an emphasis on glacier travel and crevasse rescue on both dry and wet glaciers. The course also covers a whole host of ropework and Alpine safety issues such as avalanche awareness, belays and anchors, crampon and ice axe techniques.
Dates: 19 – 25 June, 3 – 9 July, 17 – 23 July, 31 July – 6 August, 14 – 20 August, 28 August – 3 September 2016
