Humble Beginnings. #tbt 8 years ago today, I tried ice climbing for the first time! The ice tower in Winnipeg run @cesbtower (our local @alpineclubcan section) provided everything including ski boots, crampons, ice axes with leashes, belayers, and a heated outhouse. Such an amazing community to be a part of. Thanks to @rickatcrux, @r_e_clement and @billandgerda for getting me interested all those years ago!
What an amazing day yesterday! Urs Hole is one of the coolest places I have ever gotten to explore despite being mostly grade 2 ice. Thanks for the great day @j.c.dubeau!
I cannot put into words how stoked I am to see these photos. Seeing the determination on my face is exactly the motivation I need to continue training. I haven’t been that persistent and focused on finishing something in a long time. Thanks again @climbcityrock for hosting an amazing Ice Fest! (I’ll for sure be back next year...but stronger 💪)
