Angela VanWiemeersch will be presenting Friday evening this year at Ice Fest! We're stoked to check out her presentation full of images and video of her climbing exploits in incredibly diverse landscapes. She'll be sharing her climbing experiences on everything from super committing desert ice in Zion, to remote Lake Superior ice, the Cairngorm Plateau and beyond. Thanks Grivel for sending Angela our way! She will be guiding clinics Saturday and Sunday!!

We're so psyched to have our friends at Boogalows Island BBQ back at Ice Fest serving up their authentic Caribbean BBQ again this year! We dream about fried plantains all year! "Bites" from the food truck are included in your clinic registration (no hangry folks allowed!), and they will also have a full menu at Theatre in the Wood for the evening events, and Apres at IME, for purchase.
