What the Iceclimbing is??

Iceclimbing - that is a very young kind sport, as well as rockclimbing separated from the mountaineering, although iceclimbing has retained most of the basic features of its progenitor - high level of adrenaline, unpredictable and deceit relief, dependence on the weather and climatic conditions.

The aim in iceclimbing (on the artificial terrain) is climbing the vertical and sometimes overhanging ice structures that are specially build for that purpose. Iceclimbing technique, basically, is not much different from the rockclimbing, where everything is based on the coordination and plastics - iceclimbing technique is somehow cruder, simpler and more demanding on the athlete's physique. In addition, iceclimbing is different from rockclimbing by its more extreme, entertainment character - iceclimbing is more a game than a sport - in contrast to the rocks, the ice terrain always presents more surprises. All Iceclimbing events, competitions, usually represent a colorful show - with music, crowds, brightly dressed climbers. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, the iceclimbing perfectly complements the range of the extreme winter activities.

The classical iceclimbing - climbing the frozen waterfalls (Cascades) differs much from the "urban" iceclimbing - climbing the artificially made relief. Cascade Iceclimbing - that is beautiful sport, but it requires much more serious training than the "urbanized" iceclimbing.

Unfortunately, the lack of the natural objects to practice the iceclimbing, seasonal limitations and high prices of the equipment led to the fact that the exceptionally beautiful, aesthetic sport in some places has turned into an ugly bogey called "drytooling" - when people climb using the iceclimbing gear  on the not intended for this objects and structures. Do not confuse it with the iceclimbing!

In order to feel and understand the beauty of the real iceclimbing, you need to try climbing the ice cascades and glaciers. It is difficult and sometimes expensive, but that is purely real. Trainings on the rockclimbing walls, ice on water towers, artificial ice columns can provide the most of the technical skills, but never give to you even the remotest idea of ​​the whole range of feelings and emotions that gives the real natural iceclimbing!

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
