I love rock climbing. I’ve only recently begun it, but have sincerely loved the thrill of it. Looking up at a rock face and thinking “I’m never getting up that” and then that feeling when you’ve arrived at the summit and get to overlook your conquest. It truly is a great sport.
But this ice climbing business is really starting to get intriguing. This looks pretty fun, if you know what you’re doing. I think the problem with ice climbing is making sure you go with people who’ve been before, so you don’t find yourself lying on the snow with an icicle impaled through your heart.
