Hey Ed that was great! Brought back memories from that route. Ames and routes like it were quite an adventure back then. Glenwood Canyon also had some wild stuff as well as Ouray and Telluride. We took what we learned there to the mountains. Just imagine Ames and Bridalveil type routes plastered on to big alpine faces! That is some good clean living! Nice Ed!

I agree, that knowing the frozen stuff is forming makes this a very exciting time of the year for those inclined.

Of course, the frozen stuff takes many different forms.

And tuning up on these during the wonderful winter season,

makes the approach to these somewhat less nauseating.

Still, climbing the big ice faces of the Andes is typically engaging, with plenty of tenuousness hanging above.

It does give those of us, that need a little frozeness in the middle of summer a chance to get our yayas out.

To a rockclimber that cannot relate, yes the movement can be repetitive. But the ice experience is so varied, that each day out is never the same. This is why I chase after it, between rock climbs, all during the year.

That's why you can get an FA everyday! Joking really but it's almost like that.

Love ice climbing almost more than rock climbing. I definitely get a better rush doing it. Leading ice is the wildest!

Wes I can't remember the exact year but it was like in 05' or 06 maybe 07' I do remember it was in Feb just can't place the year. (if your reading this E what year was it?)that Erik Erikkson, Bill Russel and I attempted it. It was in what E and I thought was in "Fat conditions." I had no hesitation when it was my lead on the second pitch, in fact I was quite stoked thinking it was in stellar shape. First or second swing of my tool the whole column shifted, wobbled and nearly fell on me. You can see the nice size chunk that did fall fall off in the pic.

The weeping wall is on the Ice Fields parkway in Alberta Canada. I must visit destination for all that like to climb frozen water.

Nice job ticking the Hose Monster Wes! I still want that one even though it scared me silly when we tried it.


Ed I like the photo of the California approach vehicle. I have always said it is hard (and expensive) to try and be a Ice Climber and live in So Cal. You got to want it. I try and a least do a couple trips each season.


Most my shots are reposts but hell here a couple more

I spent a few winter seasons climbing ice in the Adirondacks mainly and a few other spots in the northeast. Miss it, but thinking more about winter swell than drips freezing up in my coastal setting these days.

AP - Suncatcher is towards Lillooet a ways from Jade Falls.

Speaking of which the big hanging icicle right of Jade Falls is still unclimbed...
