Ice climbing training advanced mountain school Lechtal Tirol
Many things in mountain sports are complex. Especially when mountaineers enter alpine terrain.
And this has its pitfalls in winter. The avalanche situation must be assessed. The time window for completing multi-pitch routes in the ice, including the ascent and descent, must be calculated under the given conditions. Climbers must take into account the ice formation, ice quality and any sunlight or water ingress. Tour planning that we do largely at our desks, but we are well advised to incorporate the current conditions right away so that the adventure does not end at the foot of the waterfall ice formation and everyone has to turn back.
Arriving at the formation, we have to reassess, choose tactics and then off we go:
Clean work with ice tool and crampons is the motto.
Stands must not only be set up correctly, but placed according to icefall delta and climbing direction.
In addition, it means staying dry and not getting cold feet and fingers.
Areas of focus:
- Assessment of ice quality and ice formation (ISM method)
- Improvement of climbing technique, climbing in vertical ice
- lead climbing, lead climbing training, half rope technique
- Rope team procedure (ascent and descent/on abseil)
- Stand construction (series connection, fixed compensation)
- Belaying the second and first climbers from the fixed point
- Insight into rescue technology
- Tour planning and avalanche awareness

Arrival and check-in on the evening before the first day of training

The Basecamp Gramais is less than 5 minutes walk from our three practice ice climbing walls.
Two other areas we reach within about 40min (flat approach with snowshoes).
Another 2 areas are in alpine terrain and can be reached within about 80min from basecamp. Here we use our Siberian Huskies as support during the ascent.
