Gripped - - TRAINING AND TECHNIQUE -

The Tools: You need the proper equip­ment for a day of ice climb­ing. Make sure your ice tools don’t have loose parts, the picks are as sharp as they can be and the grip tape is still grippy. Your cram­pons should also be sharp, in work­ing order and ad­justed to fit your boot. If it’s your first year, stick with dual front-points to im­prove bal­ance and pen­e­tra­tion.
