Ice climbing through the eyes of Matthias Scherer – Instagram Takeover
From time to time, athletes from Team Petzl take control of our Instagram account. For one full week, they transport us directly into their world, allow us to experience their adventures first hand, and share what inspires them day-in and day-out. In January 2017, Matthias Scherer, a seasoned ice climber with more than 1000 routes under his belt, told us about a few of his icy adventures. Break out your parkas and enjoy the seven posts from this talented frozen-water enthusiast. #MatthiasTakeover
