From: Pete Atkinson Why ice climb? well apart from the fact that i get a huge buz out of being scared shitless most of the time, its because its so so beautiful. The most blistful day i have ever had was on smiths route belaying in the cave, with a fringe of icicles, drowning me in a rainbow of light. Its nature at its rawest, a route is never the same route, it changes in character everytime it is climbed. What worked on the lead, may not be their for the second. It is total commitment. And the fun dont stop there either! Oh that long slide back down No4 gully!!!! I have never met more sane a group of climbers than ice climbers!!!

Ice climbing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Ice climbing , as the term indicates, is the activity of ascending inclined ice formations. Usually, ice climbing refers to roped and protected climbing of features such as icefalls , frozen waterfalls , and cliffs and rock slabs covered with ice refrozen from flows of water. For the purposes of climbing, ice can be broadly divided into two spheres, alpine ice and water ice. Alpine ice is found in a mountain environment, usually requires an approach to reach, and is often climbed in an attempt to summit a mountain. Water ice is usually found on a cliff or other outcropping beneath water flows. Alpine ice is frozen precipitation whereas water ice is a frozen liquid flow of water. Most alpine ice is generally one component of a longer routes and often less technical, have more in common with standard glacier travel, while water ice is selected largely for its technical challenge. Still technical grade is independent of ice type and both types of ice vary greatly in consistency according to weather conditions. Ice can be soft, hard, brittle or tough. A mixed climbing is when ascending involve both ice climbing and rock climbing

    edit Techniques
    Top-roping A climber chooses equipment according to the slope and texture of the ice. For example, on flat ice, almost any good hiking or mountaineering boot will usually suffice, but for serious ice climbing double plastic mountaineering boots or their stiff leather equivalent are usually used, which must be crampon compatible and stiff enough to support the climber and maintain ankle support. On short, low angled slopes, one can use an

Ice Climbing is an activity of climbing through ice structures or formations. These formations may be in the form of frozen waterfalls, icefalls, ice slabs or rocks covered with frozen water or ice, or artificial structures.
Ice climbing is a crucial part of any mountaineering activity or training.
What makes Ice Climbing beautiful is that it is nature in its raw form and routes are not always the same after a first climb. These unique characteristics drive the strong Ice Climbing community all over the world.
UIAA recognises Ice Climbing as a competition sport and is responsible for the organisation of events and promotion. World Cup competitions
World Cup events of this exciting sport take place every year. Lead and Speed competitions were held across Europe in 2010 ( full report ) and the 2011 season will for the first time include an event in Asia See both Lead and Speed competitions explained on our YouTube channel.

  • Ice Climbing
    Few sports seem as insane as ice climbing. The ice is not only slick and devoid of handholds, but also constantly changing. Add to this the numbing cold and relentless force of gravity, and even ski-jumpting starts to look tame by comparison. But ice climbing also has a fast learning curve, and after a few outings, you'll be scurrying up crystal walls like Spider Man (and burning 400 to 600 calories an hour while you're at it). Once you know the ropes, it's not even all that dangerous. Here's how to train for your next ascent.
    Resistance Train with a Sport Cord
    This is a great way to condition your arms for the whacking and hacking of ice climbing. Attach one end of the cord to a sturdy anchor 10 feet away, holding the other end in your right hand. Next, start chopping as if you’re holding an ice ax. Switch hands and repeat. Start with 2-minute intervals, building the intensity and length of your sets as you get better.
    Have a Ball
    Strengthen your rotator cuffs with the prone on ball reach. Position yourself face down on a Swiss ball, holding a weight in each hand at ear level. Reach forward one arm at a time, performing two sets of 15 reaches with each arm.

"We're all fucked. It helps to remember that."
George Carlin The site offers information on iceclimbs and iceclimbing in North American regions (I know that Mexico and Canada haven't been added yet). There are ice festivals during the season which offer entertainment, gear and technique demonstrations, and the chance to cluster with other climbers. For those thinking about getting started , the ice festivals provide a chance to play on ice. Why? I gathered the information found on this website for my own selfish reasons: I wanted to roadtrip and climb more ice. Then I decided to share that information. I hope these pages provide enough data to get you on a great road trip, or up to more local ice. Your comments and questions are almost always welcome (send them to will at iceclimb dot com).

Ice season in La Grave was fantastic this year. Sean was down and we had quite a day out on Caturgeas, La Grave. Later in January Tim and Paul came for some more action. Got some great photos from the season - a couple of them available to spice up your desktop background if you like. Feburary 2001
As many of you know, I have been in France since the start of the year after a number years in England. One of the things France has that England lacks is reliable ice climbing conditions. Grenoble where I currently live is right on the doorstep of one of the biggest waterfall ice climbing areas in Europe if not the world. Just like normal climbing France has very easy access to the ice, safe bolted belays and even bolted ice routes. Less adventurous than England, but in ice climbing you actually appreciate this - at least to start with - as the nature of ice climbing is arguably more on the edge (read dangerous) than normal rock climbing. Much more objective dangers. I have only scratched the surface of the climbs down here - I have so far enjoyed a few of the falls in La Grave, the incredible sunny ice of Alpe D'huez and the magnificent multipitch and more remote routes of Vallon Diable.

Montain-Guide Ice Home Alps Vaudoise Arolla ... Ice Article Ice Climbing in the Alps Icefall climbing is a very magical experience. The beauty of the surroundings along with the physical excitement and exertion of the climb itself makes this a very compelling activity. The ice-climbing environment is almost surreal with the textures, patterns and translucent colours of the cold ice ever present. Ice climbing is not only the domain of the macho climber as there are many routes to choose; from friendly slabby ice climbing in the sun to steep long multi pitch routes in the shade. The development of modern ice climbing equipment has made this activity much easier and safer, than it use to be. This has opened up the sport for many people. Ice screws are much stronger and easier to place, whilst axes and crampons are specifically designed for steep ice and can be easliy and securely placed/removed with minimal effort. My services range from providing a structured instructional courses on icefall climbing to personalised guiding. I provide a personal service which is tailored to the client.
