Trip Snapshot

Ice climbing 201 takes climbing to a whole new level. There are not a lot of people in the world who can say that they’ve camped in the winter time–add a 7 mile snowshoe and two days of climbing frozen waterfalls and you’ll be among the very few.  This trip focuses on the basics of an adventurous spirit and human survival in the midst of a beautiful winter wonderland and is sure to sharpen your character in every way imaginable and then in ways you just can’t imagine until you see it with your own eyes.  If you are fearful that you won’t make it, may I give a little history… we’ve taken teen girls on this trip who have never camped a day in their lives… chew on that for a moment.

Safety

All Project Forty instructors have been trained in their focused discipline and carry a minimum 2 years experience as a Guide Partner, under direct supervision from a current and certified instructor.  Climbing instructors are certified through the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) and hold a Wilderness Advanced First (WAFA) or higher.  All rappel sites are set up with redundant and equalized roped anchors, built off of solid, live trees.  Rappels are backed up by a second belay line controlled by a guide.  Climbing for participants are all top roped and use back-up belays.
