First Time Climb

Climbing a vertical wall of ice seemed intimidating, but it was actually easier than I thought. My Yamnuska Mountain Adventures guide provided the boots with crampons, ice axes and safety gear, and taught me how to navigate the ice in incremental steps. I got comfortable at one skill before trying the next. Reaching the top of the wall was an exhilarating thrill that I think about often. I impressed myself, and my friends and family back home. — Lisa Stephens
