Junior Ice Climbing at Snow Factor

Junior Ice Climbing - Sundays at Snow Factor

Ice Climbing will make its debut at the Bejing Winter Olympics in 2022.. while that seems rather far away, we are increasingly excited for the sport’s future.

We want to help youths get as excited about Ice Climbing as we are to help grow the sport. Junior can now enjoy take part in junior taster sessions and inductions every Sunday at Snow Factor. During the 90 minute sessions, our expert instructors introduce juniors to Ice climbing and will see them make their way up 12m of ice. Do you know a junior who would love to try ice climbing? [Recommended for juniors between 12-16yrs with at least size 4 feet.]

Caitlin Connor, a regular visitor to Snow Factor and Ice Factor’s ice walls has grown to love and excel in the sport, so much so she is now (as of Saturday 11th Nov 2017) in the GB Ice Climbing team! We are delighted for Caitlin! She recently competed in the British Drytooling Series placing 1st and will be going to World Youth Ice Championship in Lichtenstein in January. You can follow Caitlin’s Ice Climbing Journey HERE.
