A hot winter adventure with Ice- Climbing.

Who don't desires to enjoy the melting ice, the snowballs in the snow way? One very thrilling, yet adventure winter sport comes with Ice climbing, a bit similar to what we had a talk about rock climbing in our blog. The task involves a challenging journey on the hard core snowy spots.

Take the climbing venture with your three three limbs and one hand plying the ice-axe. The ice are hard and rough as rocks in the mountain and as such keep a strong hold on yourself and the equipments you are handling. No holds and anchors are accessible in the icy mountains and the climber themselves have to position them with pistons or screw. On thin ice, cat climbing is preferred with clawing up the ice walls and ice edges.
