First Ascent guides Chad Peele and Caroline George, along with fellow ice climbers Adam George, Seth Hobby and photographer Celin Serbo, have traveled to Norway to explore the vast expanses of Scandinavian ice and attempt a series of first ascents.
Last week the First Ascent team traveled to Ouray, Colorado, to celebrate the start of ice climbing season and to sponsor the 15th Annual Ouray Ice Festival. The festival kicked off with presentations by some of the most accomplished climbers in the industry: Caroline George
