    Why do you want to climb an iceberg? Because it’s there, of course
    On a Wednesday afternoon in St. John’s, N.L., Justin Emberley saw a 45-metre iceberg floating less than 100 feet from shore in Quidi Vidi Harbour. He called up his friend, Kevin Le Morzadec, a French citizen doing his Ph.D. on the subject of glacier modeling in Newfoundland, and said, “Let’s climb it.” And climb it they did. They put on their wetsuits and life vests, threw their ice picks and clamp-ons in their bags, jumped in the frigid ocean and swam to the iceberg. The National Post’s Kristin Annable spoke Thursday to Mr. Le Morzadec, as Mr. Emberley listened nearby. (Photos: Jerry Curtis)
