Each Winter, the Duluth Climbers Coalition hosts climbers from around the Midwest as we share in our mutual passion of climbing ice. The ice, or sometimes lack thereof, in Quarry Park makes for technically challenging lines that are more suited to experienced climbers and alpinists. However, past ice fests have offered more than just climbing! We typically try to run winter clinics (climbing, camping, etc) and have forums for discussions and seminars on ice climbing.

Our hope with the new ice farming system we have begun installing is to create lower angle ice that less experienced climbers can practice and learn on. With your support we can finish completion of the ice farming system and have a recurring source of ice for all to enjoy!
