This course is an introduction to ice and rock climbing. Suitable for those who have completed a glacier course, or who have similar experience.
The participants must be familiar with the proper handling of crampons, ice axe and rope and need to have experience in crevasse rescue. We do not require any rock climbing experience.
The ideal base for ice and rock education is Jostedalen. Here you will find optimal climbing terrain, in rock and ice almost on the doorstep.
The mountains Hurrungane in Jotunheimen is within reach. For the finale we go to Søre (the southern) Dyrhaugstind (2072) and return to Turtagrø along Dyrhaugsryggen, a nice and classic climb and traverse in Jotunheimen.
