the climbing at Pictured Rocks. We started a photo contest 2016 and have
been blown away by creativity of our Ice Fest family. We’re stoked to see
what everyone comes up with this year!
Here’s how it works:
1. During the weekend of Ice Fest (February 9th -13th) snap some photos. Photos
of climbing, socials, approaches, whatever as long as you feel it represents your

#michiganicefest2022. You can enter as many times as you want. Please make

page and the photo with the most likes at the end of one week will be the winner.

Fest shots anyway, so you might as well try and win something. The prize will include a

On top of this already stellar prize, we are throwing in some gear and clothing from our
