You know spring has sprung when you can pull ice screws straight out w/o twisting them, follow the first pitch of "Freedom" bare nippled and shirtless, excavate a plush belay ledge from slush 200 ft up a vertical flow of ice, and fill four nalgenes from an unexpected pick-hole gusher...

Corn Skiing is probably a lot more fun than Corn Ice Climbing...

Be safe out there in LVC! The sun hits the top by aboot noon...

Saw some big rocks coming off of Bard-Harrington a week ago. The thaw is here and getting worse...

I was there this past weekend and it was really good. Farther right (and shorter) was colder and harder.
