what is Ice Climbing?
Ice climbing is the activity of ascending inclined ice formations. It usually refers to roped and protected climbing of features such as frozen waterfalls, icefalls, and cliffs, and rock slabs covered ice refrozen from flows of water. It’s a lot like rock climbing but you’re climbing a completely different surface.
While the sport itself is fun, it helps to focus the mind and also, has countless physical benefits. You can build strength in your forearms, biceps, triceps, shoulders, and quads. You will also build your cardiovascular system and develop great core strength. Because climbers tend to spend a lot of time holding on to overhanging pieces of railings or concrete to train their ability to lock into position and stay there, it also improves their grip dramatically.
Like other extreme sports, this one gives you an adrenaline rush as well and keeps your mind in the moment. What better way to enjoy the ice and get a great exercise out of it as well? For more information visit our website or call (800)348-3495
