Author, climber, and guide Majka Burhardt is coming to Ice Fest! Majka, an AMGA-certified guide from Colorado Mountain School, will be leading several women’s climbing clinics during the festival and will be opening up one of the slide show evenings. Majka’s presentation, “Ice Again,” will tell her story of returning to ice climbing after a ten year hiatus. Majka is a writer and guide whose column, Whipped, in Climbing Magazine often presents the human (read fallible) side of climbing. She brings that same self-deprecation to her slide shows. Find out what happens when she exports herself straight from height of heat in Cape Town, South Africa to the barrel of winter cold and claws her way back into the frozen world.
