Black Ice—Lake City

Black Ice—Lake City

Neptune Staff |

Senior Ski Shop Tech @michaelmirabellaphotography reports:
The Lake City ice climbing tradition continues for the 3rd year in a row! Lake City offers incredible ice climbing throughout the winter. Human-made ice walls tower 90+ feet over the canyon road on the outskirts of town. Thanks to the awesome ice tool and crampon selection in Neptune's rental fleet, everyone was outfitted with the best gear.
We all love the Nepal Cube boot from La Sportiva. Very warm and comfortable, the Nepal Cube kept our feet comfortable all day. The Blade Runner crampon from Cassin is excellent for those who love the precision of the mono point. For me, I like the dual points on the Petzl Linx. When it comes to tools it’s hard to go wrong with the either the Petzl Ergo or the Cassin X-Dream. Both are awesome ergonomically designed tools with customizable and replaceable features. Of coarse you can’t forget the right rope! Sterling offers great 70 meter ropes with dry treated core and sheath which served us perfectly.
