February Ice Conditions

It's been a while since we've seen significant snow, but the ice is great! The park is super fat and sticky. Skylight climbs are good. Ames is getting bigger, Bridalveil is a highway. Stairway and Whorehouse are in good shape.

I haven't heard of anyone climbing the Talisman yet.

Mad Props to Dawn Glanc for winning the comp this year! She deserved it, hardest working woman in ice climbing, not to mention the best handshake!

I've been slugging it out all over the San Juans lately. Closing in on 75 days for the season, a little slow, but plenty of season left.

Cheers, CC
