Rock and Ice go together every where, especially if your ice climbing in the UK. Moving on rock and the skills you learn whilst rock climbing can be easily transferred to the Ice Climbing world.

Learning basic rock climbing skills and techniques can help you to become a better and more proficient climber in all areas of the sport, and as there's not going to be ice around all year, getting out on to a crag for some rock climbing is
great way to improve your skills.
