Register for The Sampler

This clinic offers 3 days of ice climbing that focuses on the technical skills to become a self-sufficient ice climber and you will be amazed by how much you will take away from the experience. Enjoy the camaraderie and opportunity to network with like-minded women. It’s a great place to make new friends and find climbing partners. Located in Ouray, Colorado, otherwise known as “The Switzerland of America”, you’ll climb in the famous Ouray Ice Park within walking distance to The Victorian Inn. We will fill you up during this three-day event!

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