Mountaineering Essentials

For mountain exploration in snowy conditions, there is a range of gear that is required for both safety and mobility.  When checking gear off your mountaineering list, be sure to have a look at snowshoes, snow poles, snow shovels, axes and probes.

Ice Climbing Essentials

In addition to your a climbing harness, rope and belaying device, ice climbing requires extra gear that is specific to the sport. These include:

  • Ice climbing crampons - attached to mountaineering boots, these provide a stable platform for standing.  There are different categories of crampons, each designed for either ski touring, mountaineering, or climbing.
  • Ice tools – climbing-specific tools are required for anchoring yourself to the ice.
  • Ice screws – threaded and hollow, these are wound into the ice and are used by most climbers to add protection to their rack.
