Ice climbing is an activity that involves climbing huge ice formations on rocks, icefalls, frozen waterfalls, and is similar to rock climbing. Ice climbing is broadly classified into three grades—Alpine ice climbing, Water Ice climbing, and Mixed climbing. For ice climbing, different types of gears are used, according to the type of ice, which help the climbers to maintain their balance and climb. Ice axes, pick, ice climbing shoes, climbing harness, climbing helmet, belay devices, carabiners, ice screws, rope, quickdraws, boots, crampons, gloves, eye protection equipment, and others are used for this event. The increase in inclination toward ice climbing as a recreational activity as well as government initiatives to organize ice climbing events are the factors leading to the exponential growth of the ice climbing gear market. The International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (UIAA), established in 1932 conducts ice climbing world cups and several championships around the globe. It has a global presence on six continents, 89 member associations, and federations in 66 countries.
