While reading the weekly feature about Ontario ice, I noticed the sole picture of Minnesota ice climbing. I felt it necessary to add to the discussion by indicating that Nightfall (WI4+, 60m), Minnesota's longest natural ice fall, is also the site of the Gentleman's Occasional. This almost annual event is, likely, the most important gathering of ice climbing enthusiasts in the country.
