Drytooling started out as a way to reach those free-hanging icicles at the top of steep walls, but it’s morphed into a climbing discipline in its own right and an end unto itself. Perhaps nothing illustrates this better than the video below, in which Jeff Mercier climbs a severely overhanging D13 (like M13 mixed climbing but without the ice) route in the Lake District.
