Use ice tools on rock
This is the natural evolution of ice climbing and low altitude gym climbing on high mountain routes. To date drytooling is still evolving, with a thousand facets that are still being defined and improved. What is certain is that we will be moving on two very different elements: ice and rock. Don’t be frightened by all the images of large overhangs dominated by giant hanging torpedoes ready to detach at any moment. Even with drytooling we go step by step: we will learn about the equipment and techniques necessary for this discipline, how to use it in different situations and how to evaluate the safety of a route. To start with, we will explore suitable sites that involve minimal engagement, enabling you to become familiar with the discipline.
