i have tried it in northern washington during the winter on a waterfall. go with a outfitter, this sport requires a lot of expensive gear. if you know someone that is into it and has the extra gear that would be good, but usually they only have gear for themselves. some climbing shops have the gear for rent, but i would still go with an outfitter at least once so you learn all the safety stuff.
Alright, thanks for the pointers.
There are outfitters near the Matanuska Glacier, near Milke 108 on the West Glenn Highway in Alaska. I was near there at Sheep Mountain and empoloyees could get to go free as long as there was space available.
Cody, WY has some of the best ice climbing around. Here are a couple of links:

Cody is also the host to the Annual Waterfall Ice Festival:

You should check it out while you are in YNP (don't know about the ice in the summer LOL). I don't climb but there are many around here who do.
Sweet. Do you folks then I should workout until winter?
Like is it required to be really strong?
doesn't hurt, pull ups and push up would help, and strenous hiking would take care of the rest
I climbed on Root Glacier in Wrangell - St. Elias Park, AK. Glacier climbing is easier than ice falls, I think. I was with guides when I was working at a lodge near by.
