    This is just so awesome. I feel like I'm standing right there, wrapped up in my warm jacket, watching intently as Francesco scales ice! That feels impossible, right? Ice climbing? What a cool thing to do. What really makes this awesome moment even more visually interesting is the background layer of the structures climbing up the mountain in the background. I love it!
