(KFOR) It looks as though someone left a sprinkler on.

Maybe it's a broken pipe.

Instead, what seems like an ice flow disaster to most casual observers actually serves up a unique opportunity for climbers like Aaron Gibson.

"It's kind of wet in here," he says while gearing up for an ice climb.

With a garden hose running 40 feet up, and a little chain link fencing to hold it to the walls of an old grain silo, all Gibson and his staff need is a long cold snap.

"We need to have al least 3 to 4 days," says Gibson, who owns the silo and has turned it into the Rocktown Climbing Gym.
