Ice Climbers have a couple of ways to freeze their opponent, namely with Neutral Special and Down Special. As a result, this is one of the few matchups where the Belmont you pick matters very slightly. Since Simon's Holy Water has fire properties, in cases where the flame pillar becomes neutral and Simon is frozen, Simon will be unfrozen as soon as the fire hits him once. Meanwhile, Richter's aura flame pillar will not free him from being frozen. This means that, typically, you would want to go Simon instead of Richter in this matchup. Other fringe cases exist with characters having freezing moves, but this is the most pronounced case.
