Im new to RC.com and to colorado. I moved out here in august for school, and now that its accesible I want to try ice climbing. If anyone knows a good place to start give me a shout. Thanks.

There are some nice, mellow WI2 flows up the Big Thompson Canyon that are a great place to learn. They are right off Hwy. 34 west of Loveland on your way to Estes Park. That's probably the closest place from Greeley for good beginner ice.
Check out Cameron Burns' guidebook for Colorado ice for the beta.

You might call Neptune in Boulder and ask about any classes. Also, there are guide services in Ouray that teach beginners. Best to start in an organized environment.
