Early Season Ice Climbing

Since our week long trip to Canmore last Winter, Ice Climbing has become a passion of ours. This past season has seen us put a lot more effort into Climbing in general.

What gets us Stoked, VI

Something tells us we’re going to regret using Roman Numerals for these video posts. “What’s the symbol for 6 again?” Anyway, here’s a cross section of what we’ve watched this week. We’ll definitely need some stoke for this weekend as it will involve Crampons, Ice Tools, no Ice and wet rock. Dry Tooling baby! Mountain Biking:   Climbing:   Mountaineering:   Skiing:  ...
