Have a hankerin’ to get out of the park and hone your backcountry skills?  Join Chicks in Cody, Wyoming for our Graduate Program. Travel with us this winter to experience one of North America’s premier ice climbing destinations. The South Fork Valley of the Shoshone River is home to the largest concentration of waterfall ice in the lower 48 states. This program runs at a 2:1 guide to client ratio and focuses on backcountry multi-pitch ice climbing. This physically demanding program will have you out in true Wyoming wilderness all day hiking and ice climbing. This clinic is recommended for advanced beginner (level 2) to advanced climbers. Multi-pitch rock and or ice climbing experience is preferred.  Register today!  This clinic is so specialized that capacity is extremely limited.

If you feel you are ready to graduate to the next level, then this program is for you. Chicks will be traveling to Cody, Wyoming to explore the South Fork Valley of the Shoshone River, to climb some of the best ice in the country. We will base our program out of the Double Diamond X Ranch (DDX). The ranch is a perfect blend of seclusion and accessibility. The DDX Ranch is in the middle of it all with trailheads to the ultra classics within minutes of the ranch. With no wifi or cell service to distract us, we can truly focus on our climbing. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this unique trip.
