Ice Climbing in Vermont

Reach for Adventure

Ice climbing affords rarely seen views of Vermont's beautiful scenery, whether you're a beginner looking for a first introduction to the sport or an experienced climber looking for a challenge. Vermont's icy waterfalls and mountain faces make for a great winter excursion. As interest and participation in rock climbing and mountaineering have grown steadily in recent years, climbers have discovered plenty of ice formations in the Green Mountains to practice and test their skills. Taking up this sport requires proper clothing and equipment along with the guidance of an experienced instructor; be sure you're prepared before you arrive, and check out the Vermont Outdoor Guides Association's directory of ice climbing guides and instructors.
