Ice climbing gives us regular, feet-on-the-ground humans an opportunity to scale rock faces like gravity-shirking super heroes. Put some crampons on our boots, a couple of axes in our mitts, and we can do anything! Well, okay, we might not be all that graceful or great at it to start, but we can at least put in a pretty good showing, even if we've never climbed much of anything before.
Michael Hitz of Portland has been wanting to try rock climbing for years. With guidance from Noah Kleiner of Equinox Guiding Service in Camden, Michael got to climb outdoors for the first time. Watch the video to see how it went. Sponsored by Spectrum Healthcare Partners.
Whether you've done some climbing before or your entirely new to it, a guided climb with Equinox Guiding Service will build your confidence and maybe even get you to challenge yourself more than you thought possible.
