Ice Climbing

Mountaineering does not get any easier than ascending moderately sloped ice. it's like walking on a sidewalk. Climbs sometimes start at night in order to ascend on ice, or hard crust, and descend once the sun has come up and warmed things up to snow and slush.

the key to walking with crampons is to keep all the points on the ice, a technique caned flat-footing and French technique. sometimes that means walking sideways, sometimes walking backwards.
