At the lecture we will cover safety principles that are both common to climbing in general and specific to ice climbing.

We will cover gear selection and use, including harnesses, helmets, technical ice tools, crampons, gloves, and accessories that are suitable for ice climbing.

We will cover the finer points of ice climbing movement: the most efficient and effective way to swing the tool, to kick with crampons, and to move upward on the ice.
