Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
This segment of the Anyplace Wild series features host John Viehman, Climbing magazine editor Michael Kennedy, and local guide Joe Lentini. The three men set out to try and scale the walls of ice in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. As the video footage indicates, the men have carefully worn many layers of clothing since the temperature often hovers near zero degrees. As viewers watch the men climb on frozen waterfalls, it becomes clear that this is a dangerous sport that requires strict attention to the techniques that only highly qualified guides or experienced climbers should try to teach others.
