The beautiful icy winter waterfalls of Ontario's Niagara Escarpment

In Ontario, Canada exists a one thousand kilometer long crack in the earth called the Niagara Escarpment, ranging from the north end of Bruce Peninsula all the way south to the world's most famous waterfalls, Niagara Falls. As temperature goes below the freezing point in the winter, water keeps flowing and freezes all around the naturally made rocky structures. That creates a magical and almost surreal design of large icicles hanging off stone walls through which streams of fresh water babble down and continue into a river. To the enjoyment of many, one of the most popular and treacherous activities around these falls is ice climbing. Women and men gear up and challenge themselves to climb huge icy walls created by the elements that have frozen in time like seen at the beautiful Sherman Falls at mark 40:00 of this compilation. Footage in this video compilation was filmed in 4K and in 8K during the months of February and March 2021 in and around the Hamilton area in Ontario, Canada and includes sites such as the Sherman Falls, Smokey Hollow Falls, Upper Hopkins Cascade, Canterbury Falls, Tiffany Falls and Cliffview Falls.
