Climbing: Ice Prep

So ice climbing allows climbers to climb all year around. By using crampons and ice tools, one can scale waterfalls and any frozen water ice. Check out this sweet video to see what ice climbing is all about.

Fortunately, some of the best ice climbing in the country is right here in Utah, right up Provo Canyon. Bridal Veil Falls freezes over every winter and offers secure, vertical water ice.

So in preparation for the coming winter, Michael, Eli and I headed up the canyon to practice our ice climbing technique on some rock faces.
