Of course, climbing can be an extremely dangerous sport if you aren’t trained properly. It is, in fact, quite different from rock climbing and ice conditions are constantly changing. As such, it is advised that you go with an instructor or guide to assist you. Furthermore, it is imperative that you never attempt ice climbing alone.

“When ice climbing we always recommend you stay hydrated and have lots of high energy snacks. A thermos with a hot beverage can be a welcomed break on a cold day and high energy foods make sure your metabolism is also helping you stay warm,” advises yamnuska.
