While most of the frozen waterfalls around the world are incredible enough to just visit, many of them are also popular destinations for daredevils that want to try their hand at ice climbing. The Daily Mail wrote a recent article about this extreme sport and the daring climbers that risk their lives for the ultimate adrenaline rush. Using just ice-axes and crampons (a traction device), they scale these enormous frozen columns or walls of ice, bravely pushing the limits of what is humanly possible.
