Have you mastered the art of climbing rock, and now that the weather is turning you don’t know what you will do with your time?  Consider advancing all those skills you learned in BMS rock and ice by taking TICS.  The goal of the class will depend on the groups aspirations and existing skill level but will be to teach basic leading on WI3 ice and advanced skills needed for climbing WI4 and WI5 ice.  If time permits, there will also be the opportunity to add some basic mixed climbing instruction as well.  The class will be in two parts with one evening classroom instruction and two consecutive days out on the ice in Ouray, CO.  Requirements: Completion of BMS Rock and Ice, and a lead climbing class preferred.  Exceptions can be made for individuals who can show the ability to lead 5.8 or harder safely, and who have ice experience. 

Individuals should have the following gear list as well.  Ice tools, crampons, mountaineering boots, 4 ice screws, 4 runners and all other basic climbing gear needed for a normal day out on the ice.  A complete list will be furnished as part of the class and a few items will be shared by the team.

Location: The evening class will be in Colorado Springs the week of Feb 10th, with the remainder of the class being held in Ouray, CO on the 13th and 14th.  We will be carpooling down on, Feb 12th, climbing all day Thursday and Friday.  

Cost: The cost for the class will be $185.  You will be responsible for securing your hotel and meals while on the trip.  Hotel rate should be around $75 - $90 each total for the weekend. (2 climbers per room).

There is a $20 cancelation fee and no refunds are given for no-shows. No refund will be provided within 7 days of the class for any reason.
