"Here Matt Wade, a guide at Ouray Ice Park, is lead climbing, a more difficult form of climbing where the person places his or her protection in the ice as they ascend on the downstream side of the bridge. Direct sunlight is a hindrance in an ice park—it can melt your most valuable asset. But at one point it briefly illuminated this pillar and the vibrant blue transformed the ice into a glowing piece of art."
