Ice Climbing in Canada
Rock climbing is definitely challenging in summer and the key lies in the coordination of limbs movements as well as the analysis on how to land each step. Then it turns into an extreme and exciting exercise in winter for rock climbing – on ice though. The running waterfall becomes the frozen curtain with many free-standing ice columns, what a masterpiece of nature!
Some might describe the process of ice climbing an art that requires creativity as you have to carve your way up. Many things are uncertain when there are ice columns in front of the cliffs. Every time when you plan the route, you need to hold fast to the rope and chisel out a new ladder on the ice to keep going up. Each piece of ice can be very unstable and you need to knock and touch to know if it is safe to step on. Meanwhile you might feel that you are having a silent communication with the ice. It is definitely a rare experience in life to have such a challenge on physical strength as you need to take on the cold and potential dangers.
The Canadian Rockies is the world-famous ice climbing place that attracts ice climbers of different levels. Beginners can go to Marble Canyon and Tumbler Ridge, where have waterfalls of various sizes. The lake area surrounded by the mountains has a breathtaking view which encourages you to climb up to the top of the frozen waterfalls in order to overlook the magnificent snow scenery. For those who desire to enhance the sense of excitement, Yoho National Park may be your choice. There are rock walls, waterfalls, glacial lakes, snow-capped peaks and forests for adventurers. Helmcken Falls for example, is the best place for adventurers to conquer the ultimate ice-rock ascent with a drop height of 137 m. For those who are new to this sport, it is better to hire a local coach and choose a beginner-friendly area because of safety concerns.
