Got my first ice of the year in today....Hernia be damned!!

Enjoyed it- but I would rather see it all melt and have the lazy days of summer back, rock is so much better....

Cool Josh.

We climbed Loch Vale again on Sunday. Everything is a grade or so easier since its so hacked up. You can hook your way up most of the routes. Nonetheless, it was great being in the Park for some more practice.

Zozo: I figured you'd still be sick after watching the Broncos game instead of climbing on Sunday. Glad you're feeling better. Friday is out for me (family in town and all), but how does Jan 8 look for you? Or maybe even tonight at the gym if you're game?

I thought you were moving up here one of these days. As for the 8th, I can probably get my hands on some screws, so let's keep the 8th on the books.

Dave: Glad to hear about the job down there, but sorry you won't be commuting up here much anymore. by the way, I forgot if you needed to borrow any gear for Ouray in January. If you still do let me know, MJR

Sharpie and I hit Fishcreek in Steamboat yesterday. It was a whopping 5 degrees outside. The ice was okay. The steeper ice in the center was still very thin. No chance og getting a screw in there. Pretty doubtful that it would hold you either if you try to step on it. The right and left sides of the falls are in. Both sides are very easy, 3- at best (more leading for me!!!). The approach is cake too. So if you're in the area it's worth a visit. It will really be awesome once the center of the falls if frozen.

CO is a GO

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Can you tell I'm looking forward to it :roll:

Anyway will be in the Boulder/Denver area next week for some ice climbing and looking to hook up with someone each day. I fly in on the 4th January and out on the 13th and will be based at Ambers place. She wants me to pop her ice cherry but doesn't think she will want to climb many days (Oh how little she understands the cold side :twisted: ).

I will be down in the Adirondacks for the next few days though and I won't have internet access so please don't be offended by no immediate reply. I have all my own lead gear and happily lead up to W4 but above that makes me not so happy on lead :shock: or very happy to second. I would be more than happy to second the Fang for someone or other W5's. Hell if I like the look of them I may even be tempted to try leading one (Doh... what did I just say :? )

Send me a PM if you have a chance to climb between the 4th and 13th thanks. I'm looking forward to meeting some of the CO crew of RC.com.

Hit night ice in Clear Creek Canyon last night. It was surprisingly good. The ice was in pretty good shape in spite of the warm temps during the day. Kudos to the ice farmers out there (you know who you are)! You're doing a great job!!!!

Hey Mother sheep, I am so glad you and Sharpie got up here. Fish creek falls is a great place to learn to lead. Did you two enjoy the scenery? I know it's nothing compared to RMNP but it's still beautiful. Hope to have you guys back up in the area soon

Hey Tim! Yeah, it was pretty. It was pretty cloudy so we really couldn't see much. But it was a fun trip out for sure.

Moffat Tunnel ice is in. The commonly known area is pretty solid. Hero ice on the left side is all wet but still climbable. More routes exist up there. While in the parking lot, look right up the hill past the tunnel. 2 sections are in, one of which goes at about 40' of WI4. The other area further down, we did not try but from what we could see, it looks fun. Short routes with no people. I knocked off a microwave size block off the WI4 route but some loose stuff is still up there. CAREFUL! So glad I wasn't leading it (I was going to) and really glad my partner was not below me.

I've been down riding Backcountry on Wolf Creek Pass, Treasure falls on the west side is really fat. Looks like a great ICE route. Not sure how tall it is, but it looked like a couple of pitches.

How is Silverplume looking? Is my new 59 meter rope long enough? I want to head down that way this next weekend.

Looking for a partner for ice climbing/mountaineering, weekend day trips in and around the Roaring Fork Valley. I can lead WI3 and follow 4, and most likely 5 once I get in climbing shape.
