SNEWS® Live: Reporting from the Ouray Ice Festival in Colorado, one of our SNEWS® Live broadcasting crew visited the Kid’s Climbing College. Local climbers at the Ouray Ice Park outfitted children as young as five years old with boots, ice tools, crampons and helmets to climb select top-roped routes. And perhaps, inspired in some small way, a few of these young climbers will be among the leading mountaineers of tomorrow.
