Ice climbing is one of the most difficult and risky type of climbing. The climber must be both firm and gentle to stay on the fragile ice structure and not fall with it. Ice climbing is the art of balance between human determination and the power of nature. Krzysztof Rychlik is sending "Zauberflote" M9 WI6 in Val Gardena Dolomiti - the line's name of this delicate climb on the huge icicle reminds the Mozart opera.
