Winter in Alberta used to be a bleak, drawn-out process. It would damper my trips to the mountains for six straight months, but now through ice climbing I have found a new appreciation for the many cold months. Moving up ice is a very nice experience and every waterfall that you come across is different from the last. It feels neat to gear up before an ice climb and when suited you feel ready for the climb. I dont look at ice climbing (or any other type of climbing for that matter) as a battle with nature, but as a relatively safe and controlled rondezvous with the elements. Nothing beats rolling out to the mountains on a clear and crisp day in winter ready to explore some ice.
