Every year at the beginning of February (Feb 5-8, 2015), ice climbing fans from all over descend on Munising for the Michigan Ice Festival. The weekend features presentations and instruction from some of the top climbers in the world, gear demos, climbing socials and the premier of the trailer for the Michigan Ice Film.

You can see some of the climbing locations (formed by frozen waterfalls and seepage) right here, and if you do head up and pack your camera, consider entering their 2015 Ice Fest photo contest.

View Greg’s photo background big. Most of the climbing is not this extreme – see more of it in his Icefest 2011 slideshow. Be sure to also check out his Icefest: Early Years slideshow and follow his adventures at juskuz.com.
