The Fang in Vail (Colorado) is a world famous ice pillar that forms on exceptionally cold winters. Then, when the weather drops, these cascades turn into a giant pillar of ice: a 50 meters high column and about 8 meter large at the base. Climbing these ice waterfalls at Vail can be extremely dangerous. Adrenaline courses through the bodies of climbers as they look, necks craning, to the lofty heights of a frozen waterfall.
