“Put me out in the desert, I’m going to die. I don’t know anything about the desert. Put me on the seacoast, I can feed my family. I got that wired.”
Next week is the Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival, a 15 year old gathering of climbers who aim to promote and protect the world-class ice climbing in Montana’s Hyalite Canyon. In addition to a lot of crampons and a couple of live presentations, several films will be shown, including a filmed interview with Yvon Chouinard discussing ice climbing’s history. Check out the clip above.
