Whether you’re headed to Ouray Ice Fest for your first climb of the season this weekend or need some mid-season tuning, these sharpening tips from flamboyant ice climbing legand, Margo Talbot, will come in handy.
Born in New Brunswick and heading west at her earliest convenience, Margo’s world was transformed the day she swung her first axe into the ice. The immediacy, focus, and joy of the activity has been her passion ever since.Margo credits physical activity and her relationship with nature as the driving forces in her healing journey through addiction and depression, a journey chronicled in her tell-all expose, All That Glitters.
Margo lives in the Valhalla Range of south-eastern British Columbia where she grows food and immerses herself in the glacier-fed lakes and powder snow that the area is renowned for.
When not in the mountains, Margo spends her time speaking, writing and teaching people how to climb. Her goal is to introduce as many people as possible to the activity that literally saved her life.
