HAT: Non-Technical Ice Axe Course, Part 1 at Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center
Are we going to learn how to climb frozen waterfalls in this course? No, of course not! The key phrase in the title of this course is non-Technical. This course will serve as an introduction to low angle snow travel using basic mountaineering ice axe technique, with and without MICROspikes on your boots. No crampons!!!
