Alpine Ice Climbing

This album includes pictures of Alpine Ice Climbing. That means traditional ice climbing on alpine mountains.

I think this is one of the most beautifull ways to climb a mountain. Climbing on ice gives you a very unnatural and special feeling. The cold temperature on an alpine ice climbs makes it a very demanding and hard discipline.

Years ago the north faces of the Alps where a real big challenge for great mountaineers. Today, due to the new equipement, the north faces are less hard to climb. Still, do not underestimate the danger of alpine ice climbing.

Feel free to attach pictures of your alpine ice climbs! (please do not attach any pictures of ice climbing on falls, only alpine ice climbs).

Private attach

Good idea and some very nice photos.

You invite others to attach photos - in order for them to do so, you must disable the private attach only feature so that the option to attach photos appears in the sidebar. It is on the edit page and just toggles between yes and no.
