Whether you have climbed at all before, or are a complete novice, this ice climbing experience is perfect for anyone who wants to take their extreme sports to a whole new level! Available in London and Manchester, this experience will give you one-to-one tuition on how to scale the varying vertical terrain that these challenging purpose-built towers provide. Upon arrival, your instructor will give your group, which will include no more than five people, a full safety briefing and introduce you to the world of ice climbing with hints and tips on how to get started. You’ll then be kitted up before heading to the ice tower - 100 tonnes of snow compacted to form a 300m2 obstacle course. If you really are a novice, you can start on the beginners slope to get used to the techniques needed before progressing onto the more advanced vertical courses, with steep overhangs and canyons.

I've been climbing before but nothing like this! Ice climbing is like an extreme version and was much harder than it looked! My instructor helped me to navigate some of the more advanced parts of the ice tower but it was a wonderful day's climb.
