Ouray Ice Park

Climbed today at South Park with the Hirsch family.  

We had a wonderful time and ice conditions were great.  Many routes have healed up well after a lot of climbers during the Ice Festival.  Today was a busy day in the Park, but there are lots of climbs with great ice.   

Kellan, the 16yr old rock/ice star was tearing it up his second day ever on ice.  He set the bar high for his dad Art, mom Patty and lil' bro Zach to follow.  We climbed till our arms were pumped silly, then more without tools, getting creative with hands on rock and ice!  

Temps started out cold in the morning, but it was a beautiful San Juan day - with smiles all around.
