Jeff Mercier Ice Climbs a ‘Cave of Dreams’ in Chamonix


Hold your breath as ice climber Jeff Mercier descends — like Dante plunged into the inferno — into the surreal azure icescape of a Chamonix moulin.

Time to start getting amped for ice climbing season. And what better way than by watching the great French climber Jeff Mercer pick his way up, down, and across moulins and ice caves?

It all goes down in “Ice Hunters: Cave of Dreams,” a film from Rab Equipment. You want rushing waterfalls and stomach-churning moves? You got it.

“It was totally mental,” gushes Olivier Gajewski, one of Mercer’s ice climbing companions in the film.

We agree. Check it out for yourself.
