DET: ICE CLIMBING ADVENTURES

Written by Lauren Fryan

Mappy Hour DETROIT is here!

September 28th- a crew of Detroitians met to learn about ice climbing in Michigan. Garrett Peabody of Peabody Ice Climbing shared his epic ice climbing adventure in the mountains of Africa…..yes, AFRICA! Garrett taught the crew a ton about adventuring in Michigan and it turns out- there is world class ice climbing along Lake Superior. Many adrenaline seekers love the area because you can ice climb above the water- which adds a whole other element to the thrill of the sport.
We were lucky enough to enjoy a slide show put together by Garrett at the beautiful Collective at True North– complete with blankets and brews.
Check out some photos from the event and Garretts awesome presentation!

Looking forward to many more DET Mappy Hours!!
