Ice Climbing Wish List

Ice Climbing Wish List

 

The mountains seem to have conquered us long before we set foot on them, and they will remain long after our brief existence. This indomitable force of the mountains gives us humans a blank canvas on which to paint the drive of discovery and, in the process, test the limits of human performance.
~ Conrad Anker

 

 

A list of ice lines, I am most interested in. This is a distinct list of routes of varying style, length, difficulty, technical skills and geographical locations. It is a lifetime wish list of ice climbs for me.
