NZAC Leading on Technical Ice Courses

Who is this course for?

The NZAC Leading on Technical Ice Course (LTIC) is designed for fit mountaineers able to look after themselves on 35 degree snow slopes, who are confidently leading traditional rock climbs, with good rope management skills and with experience snow camping. Participants will fly into Wye Creek and walk out following on the final day. Do not apply if you do not have any mountaineering or trad climbing experience.

Flexible Course Dates

The plan is to run the course over 3 or 5 days. However, given 48 hours’ notice, you will need to be available for a delayed start and so a delayed finish, if the weather forecast is better. Therefore, you will need to be available for a 4 or 6 day window and instruction will occur on the best 3 or 5 day block out of the 4 or 6 days. There is a lot to cover and this gives us the best chance of optimal conditions for instruction and climbing.

5 days – 25th – 29th July (26th – 30th July if delayed start is required) Decision on a delayed start to be confirmed by the instructor via email on the 22nd July

3 days – 2nd – 4th Aug (3rd – 5th Aug if delayed start is required) Decision on a delayed start to be confirmed by the instructor via email on 30th July

3 days – 9th – 11th Aug (10th – 12th Aug if delayed start is required) Decision on a delayed start to be confirmed by the instructor via email on 6th August
