A sport climber on a mixed climb, using ice axes and crampons to climb a rock wall in the Ouray Ice Park in Colorado.  The rock section is surrounded by ice, so the climber will transition from the rock to ice to finish the climb.  Mixed climbing is a combination of rock and ice, using ice climbing gear.
