Ice climbing: the first Abisko Ice Climbing Festival an overwhelming success!
The first edition of the Abisko Ice Climbing Festival took place from February 28 to March 3, 2013, in Sweden. Merja and Anders (founder of Arctic Guides), who created the event, opened the door to an exceptional winter wonderland for the many who attended, and provided a great opportunity to learn or to sharpen one’s ice climbing skills. During the four-day festival Robert Jasper, Team Petzl member, led clinics and demonstrations on how to properly scale ice. As a supporting partner, Petzl provided participants with all the right gear to enjoy ice climbing.
