Arrival at Praxmar: we meet us at Alpengasthof at 9am. After welcoming we do an introduction to ice climbing gear. Shortly we will access the first icefalls. It starts with crampons on the feet and later with ice axes in the hands. We learn the basic techniques of ice climbing. The activity during the day is rounded off with a theory unit. Then dinner and a cozy get-together.
We work on our basic techniques. We learn and practice more forms of ice climbing, using a variety of techniques with crampons and ice axes. We climb moderately steep ice, with toprope. We also practice safety techniques in waterfall ice.
We deepen the learned techniques , lots of climbing in steep ice falls. Setting a belay station and a topropein ice are also a topic of the day. First attempts in the lead are also done. Optionally in good conditions and suitable participants, we climb a waterfall with several pitches.
