This is an attack best used when near the ocean or another large area of water. The user places their hand in the water, then channelling their chakra into the body, quickly freezes it (along with anything in/on it) completely solid. The actual extent of the ice can stretch for miles and last for over a week, depending on the amount of chakra used in casting the technique. An alternate version of this is where the user places their hand to the ground and uses the ability to quickly freeze an entire huge area turning it into an cold, frozen wasteland for the default period of one week, although a couple of factors (environment, climate) may affect this. Not only does it freeze the area, but turns anything and everything in the area, including living organisms, into completely frozen statues. It is undetermined how long the targets of this version would remain frozen, also if they're left unattended the span of their imprisonment may last for a long period of time, depending on the environment and climate.
The attack can still be conducted as long as the ice the user controls is in contact with both themselves and the area they wish to freeze, hence one's hands making contact with the ground is unnecessary.
