With miles of sandstone cliffs lined with hundreds of frozen waterfalls, Michigan is home to some of the best ice climbing spots in the country. Experience the thrill of ice climbing a frozen waterfall, ranging from 20 to 210 feet tall, while taking in the scenic landscape that only a Michigan winter provides.
One of winter’s newest silent sports, ice climbing combines challenge and adventure. With ropes and harnesses, ascend stunning icefalls, cliffs and rock slabs, all waiting to be conquered. Swing your ax into the ice, hold on tight and inch your way up the frozen ladder.
If you like pushing boundaries, you will love ice climbing in Pure Michigan.
