Tradman! These pictures were taken a few years back. We have nothing going on right now. Standard can be climbed. I soloed Monkey Wrench to the Cleft last weekend and that was wonderful...but you have to go high to get the ice right now. Hopefully things will change here in the next week or two!

Just finished watching Ice Revolution from last years Reel Rock film tour, Will Gadd and Tim Emmet on their Helmcken Falls project. If you haven't seen it yet (I hadn't) check it out! Crazy futuristic ice climbing for sure, weird to see ice and bolts together...

Oh...lol. Sorry Tradman! Actually, Janet Wilkinson and Majka Burhardt climbed Standard route today...that must have been one scratchy and dicey ascent! Pretty cool

That fossilmonster must be something to behold, let alone actually climb. Is that crag about as big as half dome or bigger?

Bruce Kay - right, there is some really tall and impressive ice in Norway. In Feb 2005, Scott Johnston, Erik Sandelin, Björn Kihlstrom, and I climbed the 1st 4 pitches of a waterfall near what was later named Fossilmonster. There was much more above us. We went back in 2006, but the lower pitches were missing. In 2009, Robert Jasper and partners finished it, naming it Into the Wild and also did the FA of the Fossilmonster (link below).

Fossilmonster is to the right and out of the above pictures.
