Link with 871: Locked in ice.

[We often would go on a winter holiday to Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. At the end of the lake is waterfall that freezes in the winter. One time I was there and a couple of fellows were climbing it. I approached the scene to get a closer look when I suddenly realized that was a bad idea. I scurried out of the way just in time to avoid getting hit by a chunk of ice that a climber had dislodged. Here is photos of similar frozen waterfalls from the area:

Waterfall is frozen,
no more water.

(Aha, the answer is submerged
deep in the lake?)
