For many climbers, the first sign of snow means climbing season is over.
However, it doesn’t have to be.
Ice climbing is the ideal way to get your fill of route-topping thrills in the colder months. It’s not only a thing to do while waiting for the snow to melt — it’s an opportunity to try cool tools, master fun techniques, and explore a brand new dimension of climbing.
While scaling a frozen waterfall may seem terrifying at first, it’s actually quite easy to get into — all you need is some spunk, enthusiasm, and a good teacher. While we can’t provide the first two, we’ve got just the right IFMGA Guide for the job!
