Ice climbing

Ice climbing is a sport where you quickly learn the basics to get started. And as with many other things, Sälen is a good place to start. We have a beginner wall, a wall in Älvdalen which is step two, and for those who have started their climb, there is Njupeskär - the highest waterfall in Sweden.
Ice is constantly changing and creating new forms, which gives also experienced climbers new challenges in the same area. Fantastically beautiful formations, to challenge and to manage an ice wall creates both adrenaline and endorphin - an incredibly strong sense of mastering both height and technique.

Beginner climbing in Sälen

We start the day by going through equipment, technique and a short brief about the difference between types of ice. As we approach the ice wall, we put on equipment and practice different ways of walking with the crampons under our feet and also test our axes before we start to climb to the top. We take a lunch break by the fire and then we continue for a while. This is a day to learn something new and different, enjoy nature or just get a break from skiing.

Equipment included:

– Ice axes
– Crampons
– Helmet
– Harness
– Other climbing equipment
