What we will cover during the day is the basics of ice climbing such as: appropriate knots and hitches, anchor building for safe top rope set up, ice climbing techniques, crampon techniques, belaying, communication and more. After a full day out glacier hiking and ice climbing, we get back to the vehicle and head to Reykjavik where you will be dropped off at your accommodation.
