The Canadian Rockies offer a spectacular ice climbing playground every year that ranges from improbable smears up remote canyons to wide curtains close to major cities. Every year, some VOCers have travelled there over the Christmas break to enjoy the magnificent vistas, experience the therapeutic benefits of swinging metal daggers into frozen water and discover at which temperatures various parts of their body start to freeze.

Caitlin and I would like to share some of the experiences we have had over there over the past few years, tell you about what you could discover on your own and what it takes to have a good time at -20°C.
