1. W połowie stycznia, temperatury w całej zachodniej Kanadzie spadły do -35 stopni. Jednym słowem idealne warunki do urzeźbienia przepięknych pióropuszy w grocie za wodospadem w Helmcken. Rafał Sławiński dotychczas uważał, że to zabawa cyrkowa a nie wspinanie, ale jak padło zaproszenie do zabawy, to nie odmówił. Zaprosił też i mnie, ... na wszelki wypadek, gdyby było coś ciekawego. Czegoś takiego nigdybym sobie nie wymarzył, więc zacząłem kręcić, bez planu ... red point najtrudniejszej, czysto lodowej, drogi na świecie.
    Kręciłem aparatami cyfrowymi 5DmkII, 1DmkIIn (poklatkowe) i GoPro. Reszta sprzętu była minimalna, szyna domowej roboty i statyw. Z dodatkiem paru obiektywów, lampy błyskowej (AcuteB 600R) do zdjęć, i sprzętu wspinaczkowego, zebrało się tego wszystkiego na dwa dni noszenia.
    Największe kłopoty miałem gdy wiał wiatr. Ten sam deszcz, który osadzał się na ścianach w jaskini, również pokrywał skorupą lodu cały mój sprzęt. Szyna do ujęć travellingowych czasami była całkowicie zalodzona zanim dosunąłem kamerę do końca szyny.

  3. At a rating of M12, Musashi is one of the hardest mixed routes in Canada. Ten years ago, Outdoor Research Athlete Ambassador and ACMG Alpine Guide Sarah Hueniken saw a video of the route being climbed by renowned climbers Will Gadd and Ben Firth. This April, she ventured into Alberta’s Cineplex Cave and climbed it herself, becoming the first North American woman to successfully climb M12.

    Watch a section of Sarah’s successful ascent of Musashi in this teaser for “Everyday”, a new film from AliasCinema, coming soon.

  4. The Ouray Ice Park is located in a spectacular natural gorge just outside the town of Ouray, Colorado, and is home to more than 200 man-made ice and mixed climbs.

  5. Am 27. Jänner 2010 gelang es dem 27-jährigen Eiskletterer Rudi Hauser im Vorstieg die 3 wohl imposantesten Eisfälle Österreichs in 10 Stunden Kletterzeit zu durchsteigen.

    Alpine Gefahren, wie Eisschlag, Lawinen, extreme Kälte, sehr hohe physische und psychische Anforderungen an den Athleten machen das Eisklettern zur Königsdisziplin im Bergsport. Von der 1400m hoch gelegenen Eisarena im Gasteinertal zieht auf engstem Raum eine Superroute nach der anderen ins Höhkar hinauf. Der perfekte Ort für eine Marathonleistung im Eisklettern – wir begleiten Rudi Hauser über 1000 Höhenmeter Steileis in den Routen „Supervisor”, „Mordor” und „Rodeo”.

Alps - conditions for ice climbing
facebook.com/groups/535668349779087/

This is a forum open for everyone who wants to share information about ice climbing conditions in Alps (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland).

This kind of page on FB works well in Norway (facebook.com/156612854443049). I hope that its "Alpine edition" will be equally useful and popular in the future.

Share information about ice conditions in the area in which the last tarried with other climbers. It will be a great help to them in planning trips.
