A group of adrenaline junkies hang from nothing but ice picks as they scale a 200-foot waterfall after it froze for the first time in almost a decade.  The amateur professional climbers used specialist equipment including spiked ice climbing shoes, guide ropes and an ice axe to ascend the frozen wall in -7 degrees Celsius conditions.<br />
<br />
Photographer Jaka Ivančič said it was a complete shock to see that the waterfall had finally frozen after almost 10 years, and it was even more amazing that climbers had decided to take on the daunting climb.  The incredible images were captured in Val Rosandra near Trieste, Italy, and show the usually fast flowing Torrente Rosandra waterfall.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
