“The Ice Factor is your one and only opportunity to experience what Ice climbing really feels like without waiting ages for the right weather, walking miles up snowy mountains, or serving your apprenticeship in winter mountaineering skills. You just step in a big fridge and start swinging some ice tools. Some folk will just want to try it for fun, some will want to use it to fine tune their ice climbing technique, some will train for the ice climbing world cup – doesn’t matter. The point is you clock up the metres on real ice without the normal hassles of winter mountaineering” . ~ Dave MacLeodrecognised as one of the world’s top climbers

FAQs

Is it real ice/snow?

Yes! The ice climbing arena holds nearly 400 tonnes of snow/ice. This is packed onto the wall, giving depths from a couple of centimetres to nearly a metre. The routes are all shaped by hand to give an authentic ice climbing experience. The temperature is controlled to keep the area below zero. We emulate the pattern of nature to recreate a ‘freeze/thaw’ cycle, this turns the snow to neve, hard packed, compressed snow suitable for climbing on. The range of routes ensures whether you are a total beginner or a regular mountaineer that you will be presented with a challenging and rewarding experience.
