OVERVIEW

Come with us on a wintery outdoor adventure. We'll be headed up to The Gunks where we'll rope up to scale features such as icefalls, frozen waterfalls, cliffs and rock slabs. Instruction on winter climbing technique and safety will be offered by guides from the EMS School. No previous ice climbing experience required must be experienced top roping and top rope belaying.
