If you are a keen ice climber, you may be interested in signing up for one of the many competitions being held this year. All around the world, ice climbing is slowly being recognised as a professional sport and the competitive arena is now opening up from Russia to Korea to the USA.
This is a pretty self explanatory competition where athletes race up an ice face to reach the top in the best time. Skill, agility and timing come together here in one of mountaineering’s toughest challenges.
Lead relies more on skill and ability though, as athletes are given points for scaling what most would consider some of the most advanced ice climbing routes on the planet. This is a more complex competition however, as a climber has to rely on their techniques and experience to come out on top.
