Every type of climbing envolves some subtle distinctions and lessons. Ice climbing despite the fact that you are solidly placing tools and front-points requires finnese or you will quickly run out of steam . The more you relax and study the terrain the smoother the ascent . Frozen water falls come in all sizes and shapes and lot's of places are far more mellow in the Winter than at any other time of year . The descent is sometimes the highlight of the day . Have a great climb !

I'm looking forward to getting hopelessly addicted to it. It's not normally until February so I've awhile to wait... impatiently.

Yes. February.

When there is skating on the Rideau, your waterfall will be in!
