this winter focuses heavily on climbing new ascents in areas off the radar.

quiet, peaceful, unnoticed and mostly unclimbed: Japan’s possibilities for dynamic new ascents is huge

for several years now we have offered the best of Japan’s classic ice, but this winter we are opening up the possibilities for international climbers to get into the lesser-known places and work their own projects. steep mixed lines, multiple pitches of quality ice, huge lines in crazy places – theres stuff here that will amaze you.

dates still exist in peak season, when the conditions are most ideal and the psyche is high. all inquiries welcome, confidentiality guaranteed.
