Ice Climbing a 1,000-ft Waterfall | Ultimate Rush

Ice climber Harald Berger has waited patiently for one of Austria’s most awe-inspiring waterfalls to freeze over. ‘The Supervisor’ is as high as the Eiffel Tower.

GoPro: Ice Climbing Interstellar Spice

Helmcken Falls is the fourth highest waterfall in Canada. The flow from Murtle River drops down 140m without a break. Despite cold winters, the main stream never freezes, but the freezing spray from the massive waterfall covers overhanging rocks behind it. Steep overhanging walls and big roofs covered in ice, makes it home to the hardest ice and mixed routes in the world.

Height - 80m
Grade - WI 12 (water ice 12)
Location - Helmcken Falls, Wells Gray Provicial Park, BC, Canada
Date of ascent - Feb 2016

Basic Ice Climbing Techniques with Dave MacLeod

World leading climber Dave MacLeod offers up some expert advice on how to develop the basic skills required for ice climbing

Extreme ice climbing - Cascade de l'Oule, France (V+, 5+)

Soundtrack available here :
Tryad - This -
La Clak - Got no TV -
Keshty - Leave the Ground -

I've been ice climbing around Grenoble for almost 20 years, and for at least 10 years I've been dreaming of the day when the waterfalls that flow down off the Saint-Hilaire du Touvet plateau would freeze up. In 2001 a cold spell allowed us to climb a number of beautiful lines, but only the upper portion of Oule Falls froze. The consistent and exceptionally cold temps over the course of recent weeks worked wonders! Every day for the last two weeks I carefully watched how the ice was forming... and then last weekend the time had finally come. Oule Falls was frozen and ready... the only problem was that I could not find a partner for Sunday!

Ice climbing Techniques - Ice screw placement, anchors and V-threads | Petzl Tech Tips

This film demonstrates proper ice screw placement technique, as well as how to set an anchor and a v-thread in waterfall ice. We will discuss the key technical elements, but remember that when swinging your tools into the ice, it is crucial to understand the medium on which you are climbing. The quality of the ice, its structure, the terrain above, recent changes in temperature - all these factors and others must be considered before you step off the ground and onto the ice.

Michigan: The World Class Ice Climbing Destination You've Never Heard Of | Climbing Daily, Ep. 672



For all your latest climbing gear head to:

On today's Climbing Daily, we talk filmmaker Aaron Peterson about his coverage of ice climbing in Michigan, particularly his documentation of the Michigan Ice Fest. Aaron directed, edited, and shot The Michigan Ice Film, a documentary about ice climbing on the shores of Lake Superior. His film paints a rich tapestry of the ice climbing potential in the American Midwest, particularly the very rare opportunity to climb ice over big, open water. Thought to be the oldest ice festival in the US, the Michigan Ice Fest has been running since the late 80's, and attracts some big names. In his film, Aaron catches up with mountaineer Conrad Anker, in search of good ice.

The First Documented Free-Solo On This Yosemite Ice Route | Climbing Daily, Ep. 644



For all your latest climbing gear head to:

Today on Climbing Daily we catch up with Ukrainian-born, San Fran based climber Vitaliy Musiyenko, and talk about his New Year’s Day ice send of Widow’s Tears in Yosemite Valley. According to Vitaliy it’s the first documented free-solo ascent of the rarely in condition route, which has seen as few as 20 repeats since it was established. First climbed over three days in 1975 by Mark Chapman and Kevin Worral, the over 1000ft falls goes at WI5, with its length and lack of protection make it a challenging route.
