Greetings Elva, If the right precautions are taken, the ice climbing can be very safe. You have to know if the ice is solid and strong and you have to know how to place your anchors. Then it is off to have a good time. Cheers, Rich

Greetings A&K, It is interesting to watch people climb ice. It is so different than watching people climb rock. Cheers, Rich
