Volunteering at the Ice Fest.

Whether you’re an ice-climbing newbie or have been climbing ice for decades, missing the Bozeman Ice Fest isn’t an option. But you’re injured, or you’re new to town, or you aren’t familiar with Hyalite. How can you enjoy the festivities? Have no fear, and volunteer.

Service men and women reap the rewards of Montana's mountains.

Clinging to a rock wall with ice tools and crampons 30 feet above the ground, Demond Mullins lunges upward, swings his axe, and catches the route’s last hold. He pulls himself up to a comfortable position and catches his breath.

“That sucker kicked my ass last year,” Mullins calls down through a big grin, triumphant atop a particularly tricky line in Hyalite. Army veteran Samantha Tinsley belays, offering words of encouragement as other team members watch and cheer from below.
