The Club d`escalade de Saint-Boniface (CESB) Ice Climbing Tower
141 Messager Street
Winnipeg, MB R2H 0G4
Welcome to Winnipeg's free-standing ice-climbing tower-a monolithic beast that springs skyward from a river bank in the city's French Quarter every winter. The local tower was North America's original free-standing ice-climbing tower when in first opened in 1996. Since then, other towers have sprung up every winter around the continent. In Winnipeg, as soon as the temperature drops, the free standing ice-climbing tower is flooded like a vertical hockey rink by the Club d'escalade Saint-Boniface (the Saint Boniface Section of the Alpine Club of Canada).
