Your complete set of Gear for ice climbing, dry tooling and mixed climbing
As soon as the temperatures drop, the thundering waterfalls fall silent, and the mountain world slowly goes into hibernation, all those with a love of ice climbing start to get itchy fingers. If it is cold enough, the first thin layer of ice forms as early as the fall. This grows layer by layer over the course of the next few weeks and months until the first picturesque curtain of solid ice has formed by early winter.Ice climbing has evolved from a special mountaineering discipline to a sport in its own right, which has enjoyed ever growing popularity for years. And this is no wonder as the shimmering crystals, pillars, and icicles coupled with the winter ambiance are quickly captivating. There are also the physical and mental challenges as well as the cold, the wet, and the constant question of whether or not the ice is stable enough.
Unlike rock climbing, where a route remains the same for years, ice constantly changes. Ice climbing is all about trust: in the ice, in your partner, and, of course, in your gear.
