Every year I make the trek back to my hometown to attend the Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest. And every year I have an absolute blast meeting a wide variety of climbers. This event brings people from different corners of the world together to swing some ice tools and gain some vertical elevation. Whether they have never touched an ice tool before or spent years honing their skills, they all bring a level of excitement to the event. Without them this event wouldn’t be celebrating it’s 25th year!
This winter marked the fourth year in a row, I have had the pleasure of volunteering and taking photos.
