Iceclimbing school in RussiaIce - is one of the basic elements. Where in the summer there is a thunder and splash of the waterfall cascade, it is quite in winter. But in that silence you can clearly feel the tension of the silent forces of nature which are not at all asleep, but are captured and forcibly held down in their icy prison. If in the calm weather you try to listen to that silence, you can hear the voice of many soft silver bells - that is the music of the waterfall  -  it sounds from every transparent crystal of ice - it is not as tricky thing to hear it in the summer, in the apogee of its cheerful tune. But try to find that music among the chill tranquility of the winter! Ice - that surely is the element. And to conquer this element, to touch the frozen interweaving of powerful flows, to go against the them and stay a winner - it is not the most practical goal from a common point of view, but still is very noble and rewarding goal.

Iceclimbing - it is a winter activity. With its sport and extreme nature, it is still more a game than a sport. By the set of techniques iceclimbing is very similar to rockclimbing, but the technique of climbing on the ice is more simple, physically harder and requires to use more special equipment. In addition, iceclimbing techniques are based on fundamental principles of the techniques and tactics of mountaineering, from which
iceclimbing has not had time to break away as much as it happened with rockclimbing.

During the winter season, we invite everybody who wish to acquire the basic skills of movement, climbing and belaying on the ice relief. We share with you our iceclimbing skills and best practices that we have got over almost 20 years of the iceclimbing training, participation in competitions, climbing the most difficult ice routes in the mountains. Trainings are held on the weekends, in the locations not far from Moscow, on the specially equipped ice gyms. In addition, we offer to those who are interested to try themselves in the classic iceclimbing, the participation in the organized training trips to the ice cascades of the Caucasus, Norway, Austrian and German Alps.

The trainings at the MCS AlexClimb Iceclimbing School are conducted in compliance with all international safety standards, using the most modern gear and certified equipment. But you must not forget - in the iceclimbing trainings there is a certain amount of uncontrolled risk associated with the peculiarities of the ice relief. Ice can split, break off and even collapse down. Confirming your participation in our iceclimbing training, you take the full responsibility for any future consequences.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

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.
