Ice climbing is the extreme sport of ascending ice routes with climbing equipment. Assisted with tools like ice axes, crampons, belays, and ropes, ice climbers will tackle frozen pitches across the globe in some of the most exotic and intriguing locations. While it is a sport reserved for frozen terrain, combining it with mixed climbing, mountaineering, and other activities is common.
It can be done in an afternoon or as part of a sustained month-long mountaineering expedition – the choice is yours. You should have enough physical strength, fitness, and mental fortitude for your desired adventure. Safety measures should be planned for accordingly, as avalanches and crevasses pose serious risks to climbers.
