The Sierra is also home to some of the great gully ice climbs in the lower 48. Come fall, last winter’s snow is transformed by freeze/thaw cycles into the coveted Sierra ice. These climbs range in angle from a moderate 40 degrees to 70-degree calf-burners. Some are only several pitches long but others are up to fifteen hundred feet in length and are all day climbs.
As well as our regular scheduled trips we offer the option of a custom trip with private guiding. Sierra Mountain Center leads expeditions in Alaska, the Arctic, Canada, Europe, and Patagonia as well! If you'd like to do something a little different, please get in touch!
