Hydrophobia

This is "Hydrophobia", a classic ice climb (Grade 5+) in the Wiaparous Creek area in Alberta Canada. Words and pictures can't even do this climb justice - it has to be seen to be appreciated. The ice is dead vertical and seems to go on forever (when you're climbing it). (photo: A. Jones)

Re: Stunning

That was pretty much my thought when I rounded the corner and saw it for the first time.

If you look closely (i.e. full screen), you can see a climber in the middle of the climb. Cheers!
