San Juan Ice Climbing

My old friend Paul is back in town for w tune up before our annual Canada pilgrimage. It has been super rewarding watching Paul develop over the last few seasons. This trip we started at the Skylight area, ticking all the major flows. 
Paul coming up into the upper chimney on Slippery When Wet.
 After that we tackled the Ribbon in good alpine conditions. Then he climbed Whorehouse with Kevin. Today we went over and climbed Bridalveil Falls. Super trip so far!
Finishing up around the awkward traverse into the 1st belay.
Bridalveil Falls WI5- 2/17/11
Looking strong Paul!
