最“高冷”的極限運動 加拿大攀冰登頂體驗
Thrilling Winter Fun in Canada

白雪紛飛的冬日時分總是為人們帶來淒清的寂寥,但其實冬日旅遊也能夠有著夏日一樣的熱情。夏天的運動,在冬天一樣能夠體會到,而且感受全不一樣,帶來全新的激爽體驗。
There can be passionate travel like in summer even in the wintertime, though people usually think of the season as cold, snowy and lonesome. The sports activities in summer can bring a totally different and exciting experience in winter.


加拿大攀冰

夏日的時候,攀石或攀岩絕對是挑戰性十足的運動,除了考驗雙手跟雙腳的協調,還要靠頭腦去分析如何去踏出每一步。到了冬天,在嚴寒之下挑戰極限攀冰,更加是刺激度倍增,特別是當本來奔騰萬象的瀑布,在寒風中變成堅冰,原本四濺的浪花變成荊棘嶙峋的冰柱子,縱橫交錯地掛在陡崖絕壁之上,更突顯大自然的鬼斧神工。

有人形容說攀冰的過程是一門藝術,比攀石或者攀岩更具創造性,為自己登頂帶上一斧一鑿,在冰壁上雕刻出自己向上的一條路。由於峭壁前都是冷結而成的冰柱,在攀爬的過程中充滿未知數,每一次在冰幕上規畫出路線,把安全繩繫上,手上拿著斧頭用力鑿,每鑿一次也代表開創一個新的階梯,只要腳一撐、手一抓,慢慢地向著蔚藍的天空進發。每塊冰塊都充滿不穩定,透過敲鑿、觸碰才知道是不是能夠安全地踏上去,讓人頓時跟這個巨型冰塊,有著一種無言的溝通交流。儘管有寒風來襲,也許有冰碎從天而降,但每一個冰塊就像帶領著攀冰者一路往上,那種自我挑戰與體能的考驗,絕對是人生難得的一次經驗。

加拿大洛磯山脈是攀冰愛好者最愛挑戰的地方,一條山脈包含多個不同難度的攀冰點,讓大家可以以自己的能力去嘗試一下。初學者可以到大理石峽谷和特姆布勒里奇區,當地有不少大大小小的瀑布,特別是在瀑布附近有被山環繞的湖區,那美麗極致的湖景成為努力向上攀爬的努力,只要到達瀑布之顛,就能夠俯瞰整個公園的美麗雪景。至於想增加刺激感挑戰自己的話,優鶴國家公園裡有岩壁、瀑布、冰川湖、白雪山峰和森林等,絕對是冒險家必到之處。而漢默肯瀑布被探險家評為超高難度的WI10級別,瀑布落差137米,絕對是極限中的極限。對於初接觸這項運動的朋友,為了安全起見,可以於當地聘請教練帶領,在難度較小的區域作體驗。

Ice Climbing in Canada

Rock climbing is definitely challenging in summer and the key lies in the coordination of limbs movements as well as the analysis on how to land each step. Then it turns into an extreme and exciting exercise in winter for rock climbing – on ice though. The running waterfall becomes the frozen curtain with many free-standing ice columns, what a masterpiece of nature!

Some might describe the process of ice climbing an art that requires creativity as you have to carve your way up. Many things are uncertain when there are ice columns in front of the cliffs. Every time when you plan the route, you need to hold fast to the rope and chisel out a new ladder on the ice to keep going up. Each piece of ice can be very unstable and you need to knock and touch to know if it is safe to step on. Meanwhile you might feel that you are having a silent communication with the ice. It is definitely a rare experience in life to have such a challenge on physical strength as you need to take on the cold and potential dangers.

The Canadian Rockies is the world-famous ice climbing place that attracts ice climbers of different levels. Beginners can go to Marble Canyon and Tumbler Ridge, where have waterfalls of various sizes. The lake area surrounded by the mountains has a breathtaking view which encourages you to climb up to the top of the frozen waterfalls in order to overlook the magnificent snow scenery. For those who desire to enhance the sense of excitement, Yoho National Park may be your choice. There are rock walls, waterfalls, glacial lakes, snow-capped peaks and forests for adventurers. Helmcken Falls for example, is the best place for adventurers to conquer the ultimate ice-rock ascent with a drop height of 137 m. For those who are new to this sport, it is better to hire a local coach and choose a beginner-friendly area because of safety concerns.
