Sure is Quiet Around Here

Sorry for the lack of activity lately, I have to admit this is probably the slowest time of year for me as a climber. The ice was fun for a couple of months, but now the snowpack is stabilizing and the skiing is just too good. I mean, what would you choose, face shots or […]

Lake City Ice Climbing Festival

I got an email from Mike Camp the other day, letting me know about an ice festival in Lake City on the weekend of March 1st. They’ve got an ice park down there, and from looking at the guidebook, it appears there are some great natural climbs as well. Lake City is a cool spot, […]
