An Aerial View of Ice Climbing in Iceland's West Fjord
Posted on: February 28, 2013
Aerial footage of Dawn Glanc and Tim Emmett climbing in Iceland's West Fjord gives us a new perspective on big ice routes. The wide-angle lens of the hovering aircraft shows the full context of the climb—the coast, turf houses, treeless landscape and snow-covered roads—not just the up-and-down views of typical climbing films. Within this setting, the two climbers look almost insignificant.
