Chossmonkey (aka Nathan Kutcher) is a climber with a bad posting habit. Once rockclimbing.com's top poster he has proved that there's more to him than just a high post count.

It's been a dream for Chossy to apply for the Ouray Ice Fest climbing competition. This year he took the plunge and was accepted.

Chossmonkey has been working hard establishing the mixed climbing scene in Southern Ontario, operating in a virtual vacuum where this style is concerned. But when he got to test his metal against some of the best mixed climbers in North America and Europe he came out on top. Not only was he the first to top out the route at the Elite Mixed Climbing comp, he did it in the fastest time putting him in first place over all, proving once and for all that a high post count a high climbing skills can mix.

Top 5 Results:

1. NATHAN KUTCHER
2. ANDRES MARIN
3. SIMON DUVERNEY
4. BRYAN GILMORE
5. SAM ELIAS

To watch his send watch this video posted by the Denver Post: http://photos.denverpost.com/mediacenter/2012/01/ouray-ice-festival-winners/27194/

More info on his send here: http://www.alpinist.com/doc/_print/web12w/newswire-2012-ouray-ice-festival-results

Chossmonkey came out of no where and beat out the pros of the mixed scene. Here is the list of the final standing: http://ourayicepark.com/2012/01/07/2012-ouray-ice-festival-competition-results/

How is this an article? It deserves a post in the Ice forum at best.

5 out of 5 stars Hey Tony, this is more of a news blurb than an article. But considering you can only submit and article to show up under the "Rock Climbing Aritcles and [b]News[/b]" on the front page I'm going to do what I'm going to do.

Personally I wanted to write more, but I wanted to give Nathan a chance to write up something about his own experiance to the event before went through with my own reflections.
