The mecca of Midwest ice climbing and home to Michigan Ice Fest, Munising is less than 45 miles from Downtown Marquette, and definitely worth the daytrip. Whether it’s scaling the icy formations of our Superior shoreline or ascending the elevation of Hogback, if you came to ice climb you’re in for a good time.
MICHIGAN ICE FEST
Quietly nestled on the south shore of Lake Superior we have some of the country’s most outstanding ice climbing and for years it was a secret treasure no one had ever heard of! Then the secret got out. With the release of two major films featuring the area, climbers are beginning to discover what many of us have known for decades: Michigan climbing is great and the Michigan Ice Fest is at the center of it all.
