/ Advice on Water Ice Climbing Destinations
I'm slightly hesitating but Canmore Canada has some magnificent ice. It can also be extremely cold and I've not been to Rjukan or simmilar to offer any useful comparisons. So not really a recommendation - more a "have you thought about North America?" comment.
Ouray - heaps to go at and ideal for beginners. Choice of lead or bottom rope. Good accommodation close by and lot's of 'free range' ice routes in the area as well as the ice park.
I would suggest that you visit Slovenia, especially Kr.Gora area. Hopefully will have a better start to winter than last year.
