Ice Climbing

The ice changes the places you have visited in summer, giving you the emotion to enter a really new world.

The pleasure to hear  the cracking of the climbers and nails in the ice, the sound of the ice ax when it hits the ice; all this gives you the joy to rise further step by step till you reach the top.
