Engelberg Glacier Switzerland
Today’s Day of Adventure took us 3020 Meters ( 10000 feet) to the top the Engelberg Glacier. After donning crampons and harnesses we rappelled 15 meters inside a vertical cave in the ice.
It was difficult to shoot and hang on to the line at the same time. Reminder to get the GoPro !
The scenery is incredible.
We then climbed up a 15 meter ice wall in a crevas. My first time !
Rappelling down is easy;
The Engelberg Glacier never melts. Today’s temperature was in the 20s F ( -5 C) while in the valleys below it was in the 60s.
Wow! That looks way cool. I love your site !
thanks for saving and sharing this – it was coool out there – the ice climbing is something I will love to dry also back home (yes, we are at the Southern Adriatic Sea – and love the combination with the truly wild backcountry – real winter out there soon…).
