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.

    Hi Blaine,
    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…).
