181 Ice Climbing Adventure

Climbing is one of those activities that you won’t believe it until you try it for yourself… then take it to a frozen wall of ice and just move into beast-mode!  Strap on some crampons, grab some axes and battle your way to the top and look like a boss while doing it.  Don’t be fooled, even the inexperienced can find the rhythm and prove to themselves that they have what it takes to climb ice!
