Ice is such a rare creature these days around the Alps… I’m glad I got some swings in when I visited the US last month ❄️⛏️ for the Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival

That's a wrap on the Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival! This signature event champions the ice climbing community in Montana and beyond, and we had several Sterling Athletes both in attendance and running clinics.

We want to hear about your Bozeman experience! Tell us in the comments below. 👇

Gabrielle Rabadam, 26, of California, climbs Feeding The Cat (WI3+) in the Mummy area of Hyalite Canyon on Dec. 11, 2022. The four-day Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival attracted climbers from around the world to scale frozen waterfalls. Check out the Missoulian this Sunday (12/18), next Thursday (12/22) and beyond for stories from this year's event, including a look at what makes ice climbing special, how people are making space in the sport for traditionally marginalized and underrepresented groups, how the festival is even more about community than about climbing, and more.

Back home from an almost 3 weeks trip to the US.
To climb ‘Pushin’ up daisies’ 5.13c 8a+ at the Red River gorge on sight was definitely one of the highlights, but honestly every single route at the Red was simply amazing, so it’s hard to establish preferences.
The second half of my trip was spent in Bozeman and I can’t say how good it was to finally see again most of my US friends after almost 4 years and meeting some wonderful new ones. The style highlight was for sure matching outfits with my dear friend and co-teacher at the Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival Chris Snobeck

Friday's weather made it challenging for taking photos and I was wondering if I was going to even get anything worthwhile. But the snow added an extra grittiness and layer that fit beautifully. I had a great time taking photographs for the Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival and learned so much. Thank you Nate Kenney for giving us this opportunity!

Here are just a few from over 170 images taken.
