Rest day on the icefields parkway, exploring caves and swinging ice tools.⠀
.⠀
Excited to return to this place again this winter! In winter the gas stations close so it's always a challenge to fill a tank of gas and see how long we can last on this 270km long road before we need to leave to fill up again. Last winter we managed 7 days with driving back and forth to wilderness hostels and ice climbing or skiing destinations each day. That last day was adventurous, driving out on fumes in a blizzard.⠀

When I was a child I traveled with my parents to places they wished to visit. It's funny to think now but when I'm asked where I've been, I never remember to mention the places that my parents took me. It doesn't feel like I truly went there because I had no power in the matter.⠀
.⠀
Thinking about it, I feel the same way about climbing. Until I've lead the climb I haven't climbed it. Being taken up a climb by a guide or a stronger friend is a worthwhile experience but for me it's simply practice leading towards the actual experience of leading up from the ground myself.⠀
.⠀
Principles like this are ultimately arbitrary, and self imposed, but they mean something to me. Climbing is such a wonderful activity because it forces growth not only of your physical strength or your intellect to solve the riddles of the medium but also to harness control of your emotions such as fear and doubt.⠀
.⠀
Bringing the physical, mental and emotional into balance to ascend upward into the unknown with complete confidence is a beautiful thing.⠀

Myself and @springmcclurg are still fairly new to ice climbing. In 2016 we both led our first ice pitches. Similar to skiing or rock climbing we found you can't really gain confidence on ice if you just dabble in the sport, so in the winter of 2016 we planned to stay in and around the Canadian Rockies for two months.⠀
.⠀
We didn't have friends out there that are rope guns or guides so with a basic understanding of the sport we started out slow, teaching ourselves how to use the equipment. We did many, many laps on top rope. Mock leads placing screws, building anchors into the ice, before finally doing our first ice lead on ice we could have climbed without a rope.⠀
.⠀
Something that only time will teach you with ice is the variability of the medium. In 2016, we ended that ice season on a high, leading multi-pitch climbs that are rated as WI4+.⠀
.⠀
We returned last winter, in early 2017, to continue our progress and were promptly shut down. Climbs we'd confidently ascended on perfect ice that had the consistency of firm plastic before now felt like climbing up panes of friable glass. The effort required to feel safe while leading went up exponentially. It had been a much colder winter and the ice was brittle and hard.⠀
.⠀
The mystery of ice and what it might feel like to climb is part of the intrigue that brings us back again and again. Ultimately grades are meaningless, the challenge is inward with ourselves. Excited to get back to the Rockies again this winter and quest upwards against the ice!⠀
