...but I thought it would be cool to get an ice/snow climbing partners thread going. My ice partner seems to have fallen off the planet so I have none now. I need one! I currently climb WI4 without flailing. I'm interested in trying alpine ice this year and leading WI3. Anyone else looking for ice/snow partners, post here so I can bombard you with PMs. Okay, so if you don't like me, post here anyway so someone else can bombard you. It's a good thing, really. :-)

I know this is a little premature since the ice hasn't formed but hey, some of us are EXCITED!!!!!!

I can't read the rest of this forum because our site seems to be spewing code -- but
HEY... I'M EXCITED too...and I want to throw my Hell-Mutt into the ring and say "I'm interested" in ice/snow partners this winter. Put me down for a WI3 -- WI4+... :wink:

Conditions were near ideal and the weather was on our side, unfortunately Timmo reaggriavted an ankle injury he had suffered the week before and we had to back off Lambís Slide near Alexanderís.


Here is a look at the conditions in the Notch last sunday (10-8):

Marketa and I parked up at Loveland Pass and walked over the newish snow to the 12585 summit to the west. There's a cool basin to the left full of snow that some snowboarders were doing small jumps on. The snow isn't that firm, so we had limited glissading. But it was fun none the less.

Thread bump.

Marketa got some mountaineering boots and gaitors last night. Yay! She got the Montrail Morraine, which I think Tracey also has. Seems to be a good fit, but we'll see in time. You can even climb vertical ice in those since dey gots da full shank and heel welt.

Your boots are a little too small, right? She went with a half size bigger so her toes wouldn't hit the toe box.

Length is good but they are a little too tight pushing downward on top of my toes I think. After a few hours in them or a few miles of hiking in them my feet feel like needles are being driven into my toes. Iíll be getting new boots this year.

I think that feeling is more a result of stiff soles. Stiff soles make a good platform to front-point on but really suck for the long approaches. I figure it is something to do with the unnatural way your toes cannot bend as you walk. Different boots may work but alternating days between long approaches and short approaches is cheaper.

So when would be the best time to visit the Boulder area for water ice? and any suggestions for areas/routes? I would like to make a week trip to Colorado for ice.

I think the boot-gut "technical" term is called a "ROCKER".

Grant-
Don't waste you time in Denver/Boulder for ice. Go to Ouray, Cody, Vail, Estes or Rifle...
