The cold weather has begun and we are beginning the steady march toward winter — our favorite season of the year!
With any luck, this will be one of the coldest winters of the past few years and we’ll get some prime days of ice climbing!
Join GO-Adventures and Alpine Inspirations for Ice Climbing Clinics in the Catskills of New York!
When the weather gets cold, less hardy climbers scramble to move their ascents indoors. Don’t hide inside while old man winter blows his frosty breath…Get out and climb some ice!!! No climbing experience is necessary, just an appetite for a frosty winter adventure! During a full day ice climbing clinic from GO-Adventures, you will learn the fundamentals for keeping things on the outdoor up-and-up all year round. With our NY State Licensed guides leading the way, head into the Catskills, strap on some crampons and grab a pair of ice axes as you get ready to take on some frozen faces. GO-Adventures’ experienced guides have scouted routes appropriate for both novice and experienced climbers. You’re sure to have a great time even if you already know a pick from an adze. Lots of practice runs allow you to polish what you’ve learned – and to keep the blood flowing, essential exercise for keeping muscles warm and loose. Sure, you could retreat to the relative comfort of a climbing gym, but for a CHILLy thrill, try a clinic that teaches you how to relish the unique challenges that climbing in winter weather provides outdoors.

Join us for a 3-day introductory ice climbing clinic set in the beautiful Adirondacks of New York.
Whether you are diving into ice climbing for the first time or you have some experience and want to build your skills, this 3-day course can be tailored to fit your goals. The Adirondacks are home to some of the best ice climbs in North America due to its consistently cold winters, rocky terrain and abundance of waterfalls. The mountains offer it all—from beginner, low-angle ice climbing to extreme, overhanging mixed climbing.
Whether you have never climbed ice before, climbed a few times, or are simply looking to take your ice climbing skills to the next level – we can put together an awesome trip for you!
GO-Adventures and Alpine Inspirations can provide all technical gear required, including boots, crampons, axes, helmets, harnesses, etc…..
Hope to see you on the ice!
At 13,804 feet, Gannett Peak towers over the Grand Teton by a whopping 84 feet. Gannett Peak is the most remote of the high-points in the lower 48, and second, only to to Denali in the 50 state high-points. It has five rugged glaciers on its flank, the largest glaciers in the American Rocky Mountains. It is remote and considered an exciting alpine mountaineering challenge due to its inaccessibility and moderate difficulty. Ropes, ice axes, and crampons are usually required for this trip.
We are still finalizing details, but it looks like either Late June or Early August for the 6 day trip.
