I wish I was climbing Ice this well at 9 years old. Way to go Eli
Eli Minich, only 9 years old had a marathon ice climbing outing in the Adirondacks. Eli and his dad Jerod took advantage of this extended ice season and found some great climbing on some of the Adirondack classics. Eli climbed, Chouinard’s Gully, Crystal Ice Tower, Hot Shots, Ice Slots and Roaring Brook Falls. It won’t be long before Eli is leading his dad up these classic ice climbs. I bet Eli is already dreaming of next winter. Better keep an eye on your gear Jerod.

Canada is an ice climbers playground. People often think of the Canadian Rockies when picturing 250-metre, WI6 routes, but as Jasmin Fauteux discovered years ago, northern Quebec has some of the biggest, wildest ice in Canada.
