39. Ice Climbing in Virginia’s Blue Ridge with Grant Price, Blue Ridge Mountain Guides

“One of my favorite parts about Virginia’s outdoors is that a lot of places aren’t that mainstream or heavily publicized, so they require some adventuring, which can make for great experiences, stories and memories.”  – Grant Price, Blue Ridge Mountain Guides

Grant describes the experience of ascending frozen formations, the type of gear required, and how to access ice climbing through guides and clubs, so you can add this winter adventure to your local bucket list.
