Private Ice Climbing Instruction & Custom Ice Guiding

Winter time in Colorado is our playground! Colorado boasts some of the very best ice climbing in the lower 48 states and with numerous ice climbs in the Denver, Golden, and Boulder areas, there is always something in on the Front Range. This unique medium includes frozen waterfalls, snow covered cliffs, icefalls, and everything in-between. Climbing ice is the perfect mix of concentration, technique, and power blended together with beautiful mountains and scenery.

We can customize any private day out ice climbing to work on the skills and technique to climb even the steepest, hardest routes. The basics of climbing alpine ice and waterfall ice are an essential skill every climber should have in their toolbox as they look towards bigger mountains. Whether you are a beginner ice climber looking to swing tools for the first time, or a more experienced climber looking to push your grade and perfect your technique, we will customize a private day or session around you and your ice climbing goals.


Our professional guides are mountain educators and instructors who want to see you succeed in the mountains.  We offer half, full, and extreme days in many different locations across Colorado and the Front Range. See a full list of the locations we guide HERE.
