Are you looking for an introduction to ice climbing? To improve your steep climbing skills? To brush up on your technical skills, rope systems, multi-pitch climbing techniques? For a backcountry ice climbing adventure? Come climb with IMG in Ouray, Colorado!
Ouray is a world class venue for ice-climbing instruction, with easy access to climbing for any skill level, from beginner to expert. Ice climbs in the Ouray Ice park begin just a 5-minute walk from town. A typical IMG ice climbing program’s focus is on improving your personal ice climbing technique, and having a good time doing it. Along the way, we instruct on a variety of topics ranging from belaying to ice anchor building, multi-pitch climbing, rappelling, big mountain fixed line techniques, and technical rescue, all catered to the interests of our participants. Beyond the Ouray Ice Park there are an array of fun backcountry ice climbs suitable for a challenging adventure as your skills progress!
With winter coming to the mountains of Colorado, our expert staff of ice climbing guides is getting excited for the season! Backcountry ice is forming up well, and the Ice Park has started their ice farming process. We enjoy the change in pace from our typical expedition guiding. We challenge ourselves with fun climbing during the day, then go back to the hotel, relax in the hot springs, and go out for beers and a tasty meal.
IMG offers a variety of pre-scheduled programs outlined on our website: http://www.mountainguides.com/ouray.shtml
