::: Course of introdution to mountaineering :::
We can teach you how to move safely on glaciers, on mixed ground and along aerial crest. Teaching progression techniques and safety manoeuvres is a sort of mission for us. This is why in this course the following aspects will be dealt with in depth: crossing a glacier on the rope, techniques for the best use of crampons and ice-axe, short rope crossing of crests and mixed ground, the main anchorings and most important rope monoeuvres on ice and snow. As well as studying the theoretical part, you will also enjoy splendid high mountain climbs. This course is based at the very confortable Rifugio Branca near Forni Glacier and Monte Cevedale, in the central Alps.
day 1: meeting at Rifugio Albergo Forni, walk to Rifugio Branca (1.30 h) and, in the afternoon, the main techniques of crossing ice with special attention to the use of crampons and ice-axe;
