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+)

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!

What is the DIFFERENCE between the mountaineering or ice climbing axe (2018) | Climbing Vlog Ep. 6

Choosing the right mountaineering axe or the best ice climbing axe can be really hard!

In this alpine climbing vlog episode I will touch the differences between the two major types of ice axes - the mountaineering axe and the technical ice climbing axe. And besides that, Petzl has released the Petzl Quark 2018 version, which now contains some pretty cool features making it a contender for the best allround ice axe - at least in my opinion

The Petzl Quark 2018 is now a standard item in my alpine climbing kit.

There are several key differences between a mountaineering axe and a technical ice climbing axe such as length of the shaft, the aggressiveness or curve of the shaft, the handle of the ice axe, and the teeth on the pick. Besides that the mountaineering axe comes in different sizes that should suit you - watch this alpine climbing vlog episode and find out how to choose the best size.

In the vlog you can see the:

- Grivel Tech Machine technical ice climbing axe
- Petzl Summit Evo mountaineering axe
- and the Petzl Quark 2018 allround mountaineering and technical ice climbing axe

Other brands have made ice axes like the Petzl Quark such as Grivel North Machine, Black Diamond Viper or the Edelrid Riot. However the Petzl Quark 2018 adds some nifty features such as adjustable finger rests and a foldable handrest.

Before you watch the alpine climbing vlog episode, here is a short disclamer; I am not associated with any or the brands mentioned, nor have I received any product from neither Petzl or Grivel. What I tell in the vlog is solely based on my own experiences and personal views! Yup, now go a head watching i vlog!

Mountain climber saved at last second from near-fatal fall - Nerve-racking rescue caught on video

A group of mountain climbers attempting to ascend Kennedy's Gully in the Ouray Ice Park in Colorado rescued a fellow climber from near-certain death when a sheath of ice suddenly slipped out from under him.

As the climber makes his way up the gully, the other climbers who are off camera and filming him from above realize that the ice is quickly melting beneath him.

We've got a rope if you want it, a woman says. We're setting up a rappel, can you hang on?

Yeah, that would be great, he says.

There's a clear sense of urgency from the climbers above as they work to lower a rope to the climber before the ice breaks:

Always Above Us

The North Face: Always Above Us. Leading the life of a climber involves a tremendous amount of sacrifice and hardship, but for team athletes Conrad Anker and Kris Erickson, there's no living without it.

In 1999, on an expedition in Tibet, team alpine climbers Conrad Anker and Kris Erickson lost their good friend and exploration companion, Alex Lowe, to an avalanche that narrowly missed Conrad himself. To preserve Alex's honor, Conrad and Kris establish and send the Nutcracker, a new ice climb route in Hyalite Canyon, Montana. Their story, and climb, are captured here by Sherpas Cinema.
