One of the small icebergs near Quidi Vidi attracted 2 ice climbers today, it was a nice surprise under all these gloomy clouds.
To reach the base of the berg the climbers first made their way down the cliffs below Sugarloaf Path, after that they simply swam out to the berg, carrying big ice axes. It was just a short swim to the iceberg, but the ascent took a little time. Here they are as the second man got on top:
Congratulations were in order:
With a boat alongside and people on top, this small iceberg suddenly looked a lot bigger:
No doubt their crampons were very useful on the slippery surface:
After about 20 minutes they were all done exploring and they jumped off the side of the iceberg to loud cheers from all the onlookers in Quidi Vidi:
