Ice-climbing enthusiasts don’t use the same techniques as regular mountain climbers. Teachers and students will need at least one training session in class to prepare themselves before venturing outside and trying out an easily accessible surface. They will also need to be familiar with climbing terminology to communicate effectively, and learn basic safety rules to avoid accidents.
