5 out of 5 stars Womens Only! Clinic-Cody Ice Festival

Climbed the first pitch twice. The left side was wet. Somewhat soft, but yet real good. A low amount of water splashing on you. The right side was dry. Real good ice.

5 out of 5 stars Swapped leads

Climbed three pitches. I led the first WI3 pitch (two tiers), then my partner Keith led the second WI4 headwall (steep and sustained !), and finally I took a rambly WI3-ish pitch after that. I understand there is another WI3+ pitch or so up the gully according to the guidebook, but we didn't climb it.
