Ice Climbing in the Eastern Sierra - Lee Vining & Mono County, CA


Lee Vining, Calif. - Because of its north-facing canyons, Mono County is California's preferred destination for ice climbing.

If it sounds a little scary, good training is available and assures you'll be on your way to enjoying a sport that's seven times safer than cheerleading and 16 times safer than tackle football!But first, you need to get the basics in rock climbing rope skills; equipment, knots, belaying and rappelling. 

So if you've never seen an ice cube, how do you get started? Sierra Mountain Guides offers all you need to enjoy a winter sport that will have you hooked. Call: (877) ICE CLIMB (1-877-423-2546).
