I sparkle in the sunlight, but too much of it and I’ll start to disappear. You’ll feel a chill against my surface and a warm jolt of joy as you reach my top. Where Am I?
Spend a day challenging yourself to reach new heights, get your adrenaline pumping, and cross an item off your winter bucket list.
…I am Medeba Ice Wall
Rising 36 feet into the air, Medeba Ice Wall is one of Canada’s first manmade ice climbing walls and offers a variety of difficulties. Step into your harness, pull on your boots, strap on your helmet, and embrace the chill of the challenge in front of you as you prepare to explore new heights.
Feel your breath escape as you stand at the base and look up, before taking that first swing of your ice pick and discovering the satisfying clunk and stick that signals a good hold. Delight in the burn of your muscles, warming your body more with each kick of your crampon and pull of your arm.
With equipment available onsite to fully outfit groups, you can leave the worry of packing the correct gear behind and enjoy a day of stretching your muscles with friends. Book an experience with Yours Outdoors for a climb that includes all equipment, a warm hut, hot beverages, and even snacks; then get ready to test you nerves as you climb to the top, and feel the air escape your lungs as you look down.
