2 New Clinics Added! John Bragg, and Snow & Ice Clinics
« Reply #32 on: January 11, 2013, 12:20:14 PM »
Two New Clinics were just added!
1. John Bragg: Climb With A New England Legend (Saturday only, private or semi-private clinic, call QUICK!)
2. Snow & Ice Anchors (Friday & Sunday, IMCS Guide)

For more details visit the blog but both of these clinics are awesome. If you're feeling rusty on you ice anchors, sign up asap! Then you'll be good to go for the season, and your partner will be psyched too. Or, climb with New England ice climbing legend, John Bragg.
Nough' said, and get more details on the blog: http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/
