This course is an introduction to ice and rock climbing, suitable for those who have completed a glacier course or who have similar experience.
To participate, you must be familiar with the proper handling of crampons, ice ax and rope, and you need to have experience in crevasse rescue. We do not require any rock climbing experience.
The ideal base for ice and rock education is Jostedalen. Here you can find optimal climbing terrain in rock and ice almost on your doorstep.
The mountains of Hurrungane in Jotunheimen are within reach. For the finale, we go to Søre (the southern) Dyrhaugstind (2072) and return to Turtagrø along Dyrhaugsryggen, a nice and classic climb in Jotunheimen.

- Rock and ice climbing

- Abseiling and retreat
- Interpretation of a topo
