This is it gals – our most popular clinic and the one we’ve been doing the longest. The Complete Chicks will take you to a new level of climbing because you will learn more than you ever imagined during 4 days of ice climbing.  We include yoga, workshops and a “Skills Day” that enables you to sign up for instruction in rescue techniques, mixed climbing, alpine skills and more. Get pumped up at the live auction and slide show given by an inspirational woman that raises money for a local recipient. You will stay at the popular Victorian Inn, just a short walk from the Ouray Ice Park, where we climb in the famous Box Canyon! After a great day, enjoy the hot tub at the hotel or natural hot springs in town. Ouray has become an ice climbing destination with hundreds of climbs and unparalleled beauty.

We welcome ALL levels of ice climbing from beginner to advanced skills, check the Clinic Levels before you sign up.

Transportation is not included, please see Travel Beta for directions to The Victorian Inn, walking distance from the Ouray Ice Park. Please check our What to Bring List to make sure you have everything you need. We have a limited amount of demo gear, so if you have it, bring it.
