The Newest Extreme Sport for Winter Lovers
Ice climbing was once a necessary part of rock climbing. When rock climbers came across a frozen waterfall, they had to find a way to scale it to continue on their path to the top. Today, ice climbing is a popular sport in and of itself. While just as challenging as rock climbing, it offers an opportunity to get outdoors during the beautiful winter months when Aspen’s snow-capped mountains are on display. Sound like something you’d be interested in? Drop us a line and we’ll book a guided ice climbing tour so you can experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for yourself.
