During Winters

In winter, the difficulties are in the opposite direction, that is, there isn’t any stuff or even ice. The majority of the snow that fell during the previous year has gone away in the winter months which lasts from October to December. The snow that has melted leaves a vast expanse of stones that are as big as dreams behind. It isn’t easy climbing on ice however, climbing on rocks with huge gaps between them requires specific abilities, and the combination of perseverance as well as focus and caution.
