Ice Climbing

Vertical Adventure for Winter Climbers

While skiers get their vertical challenge with a gravity assist, ice climbers are going the other direction, quite methodically. But that doesn't mean that this careful assent is any less thrilling.

As interest and participation in rock climbing and mountaineering have grown steadily in recent years, climbers have discovered several ice formations in the Green Mountains to practice and test their skills.

Taking up this sport requires proper clothing and equipment along with the guidance of an experienced instructor.
