Climbed some ice by headlamp tonight. Things seemed to have formed up nicely as of late.

First climb (well it was bouldering in a very foggy and damp Peak District) of the year.

A few nice, sunny rock climbs in Sedona...multi-pitch tomorrow. Back to Ouray for some (yuck) ice....unless we get that optimal sun, no wind scenario that allows for climbing on the Pool Wall!

Took Jack to Bridal Viel tonight where he lapped me three times in the dark. Crazy weather around here. It was 46 when we left just as it was getting dark. It got down to 35 driving up the canyon and when we returned two hours later in the pitch dark it got up to 55. It is supposed to be single digit highs this weekend, thank god back to normal.

Donini, I thought you were giving up ice climbing. Good to hear your not. As my friend Dawn G. says a warm day of ice climbing beats a cold day of rock climbing any day.

Not giving up ice climbing....did my first ice climb in 1966. It's just that if I have the choice between ice and rock I'll do rock every time, more fun, more athletic, less equipment dependent, warmer....on and on and on. I love alpine and have probably done more than anyone else here. Climbing ice in that context is wonderful and I am still looking forward to a lot more.

Not bragging Ksolem, just stating the facts. Five decades of pursuing my passion on all seven continents, what have you been doing?

Have you done an alpine climb...by the way, the Sierra's don't qualify.

Edit: Huh! Supertopo seems to have automatically rotated it! Maybe it was trying to make it upside down since we're antipodal...

what have you been doing?

My absolute very best, which means everything to me. Today I climbed 8 pitches of bolted sport routes at a local area.

In a few days I'll be up at some unknown Kern cyn crags. You care for a tour of the Kern winter areas?

Sure, I love any kind of climbing. I just might be a little sensitive when my alpine climbing credentials get questioned...put a lot of pain and effort into that- one look at me and you can see it wasn't easy. Cheers...let's do a climb.

Took Jack out again tonight for some ice climbing as it has been in the 50's the well after dark the last couple of evenings. there is a nice little steep section right under the second photo that I thought he would have a hard time with, but he motored up it pretty good. Back to reality tomorrow with temps dropping to the single digits by afternoon 40 mph winds and snow. Jim how is the Black in early March?

"What did you climb today!"...



Climb...

What does the word CLIMB even mean???...

I really NEED to ask TONY...




Pretty sure I've climbed NADA for about 13days now...

;-/

But to be sure, I really SHOULD ask TONY...

Just that when I see that head of his, I'm put off a bit...

Choss above my home. It's decomposing granite. Some of the pins came out spalling the rock away with them. Only went about twenty feet. Am I doing it wrong? I didn't die....

Climbed up at Community Cave for the first time this year. Got a few TR laps in. My first time on steep ice this year and man does it make you pumped when it is fairly fresh but cold and brittle. Here is a picture of Pat a new local getting a nice lead on the original Terrminator Pillar.
