Ice Climbing

Two of my favorite things in life are friends and adventures, lucky for me I have some very adventurous friends. This is Mike and Ian; kayakers, rock climbers, and ice climbers when the ice is available. This was my first trip out with them and before we could even begin I had to put on a harness while Mike gave me a quick lesson is rappelling. A couple minutes later and I was descending into a gorge and down a frozen waterfall. 

The frozen and snow covered gorge was beautiful and I could have spent the morning just photographing that, but that's not why I was there. I was there to document my friends climbing sixty foot icicles. 

Mike is one of the ballsiest guys that I know. I've seen him tackle heights that would bring a normal person to tears. His life is one adventure after another. 

This was probably one of my most favorite shoots I've ever done. It was a true adventure and I look forward to similar adventures in the future.
