Bozeman Ice Climbing Fest

“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.

    Hard to believe Chouinard is 73. Love that he’s still rocking the flannel and (if I read his comments above correctly) climbing the ice.
