ProLite Gear has partnered with Montana Mountaineering Association(a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization) to promote the values of rock climbing, mountaineering, and backcountry travel. MMA Programs are taught by an incredibly qualified and experienced staff. ProLite Gear and MMA believe that safe access to the mountains should not be impeded by a high cost. Therefore, MMA’s programs are offered at reasonable fees or are free.
Ice Climbing Essentials one day program focuses on developing a strong foundation. It begins with learning the basics: ice axe and crampon technique; and progresses from low angle terrain to steep ice climbing. Belaying methods, protective systems, and gear are also covered.
