Last weekend, we joined our friend Kevin on a trip down to Valdez for an annual Ice Climbing Festival. There weren't a ton of people, but enough to have a lot to watch. We thought they might have some gear to rent, but I guess the size of the festival has really gone down in the last few years, and its a pretty small thing now, kinda word of mouth bring your own gear kinda thing. But we had a great time watching Kevin and a friend of his from the climbing gym, Britta, make their way up quite a few frozen waterfalls. Here's the first one they attempted.Getting their gear on and prepared.
