Multi-pitch is the essence of ice climbing. The day starts with an approach hike to the start of the route, and when we begin to climb, following the logic of the itinerary, we slowly become part of the natural environment. Multi-pitch ice climbing can mean anything from easy 2/4 pitch routes to challenging 6/10 pitch routes.
Mountain Guides Italy is specialised in organising custom made ice climbing courses and guided trips for individuals or small groups. The best learning situation is on a one to one basis, or one to two. We do not have pre-set dates for our courses or trips because we work around the needs and technical level of our clients.
The area where we are based is a magic place to ice climb. We will carefully choose the perfect location according to the ice conditions, the weather forecast and your level. There are plenty of cosy bed and breakfasts, hotels or self catering apartments where to stay and relax during your holiday.
It is for you and your guide to decide the exact makeup of your booking however, these itinerary days shown below are an example of how a booking for this activity could be structured.
Day 1 : Getting to know you
What ever your level, before we start climbing multi-pitch, we need to go though a series of routine exercises like belaying and abseiling, protection placing and removal, communication. We will then start with an easy multi-pitch route so we can find a good rhythm.
Day 2 : Multi-pitch ice climbing
Depending on our progress on day one, we will choose and the most adapt multi-pitch route depending if you would also like to lead or not.
Day 3 : Multi-pitch ice climbing
Depending on your motivation and your ability, we will select a route that is ideal for your level.
