Man-made climbing tower of ice opens in Wasatch County, Utah

The inherent risks of scaling some of nature's more perilous peaks provide a real thrill for many rock or ice climbers but can often be off-putting for beginners. A recent development in Wasatch County, Utah offers a safer experience at its ice tower which has been erected by Midway Adventure Company.

A towering block of ice nearly 7ft thick creates a golden opportunity for thrill-seekers who wish to test their mettle without the risk of avalanches or 100ft-falls. The tower is 45ft tall and comprised of approximately 200,000 pounds of ice. Ticket prices range from $12 to $45 and more information can be found on the Midway Adventure Company website.
