This is something that I've wondered for a long time, but just now thought about. Why is it suggested that if one encounters ice, that person should climb to a higher altitude. I can understand the idea of "more altitude, more options," but it seems to me that in any case other than a temperature inversion, temperature reduces with altitude. Seems icing would be worse if you climb. Any moisture that has not become ice would freeze (at least in my mind). What am I missing?
