Combining the skills of ice climbing and rock climbing, mixed
climbing-or M-climbing-allows for travel over all types of terrain,
under any condition. Though mixed climbing has always been an
essential part of mountaineering, the focus of this challenging
sport has shifted from the means of achieving a summit to what is
essentially the wintertime equivalent of sport climbing-with
bolted, often overhanging, ice and rock routes being climbed using
leashless tools, employing acrobatic and athletic moves.
