I normally go ice climbing about once a year. Sometimes I go twice if I really get into it. I have always enjoyed being outside in the cold and why not mix it up with my favorite thing to do? I haven’t climbed or ice climbed in Redstone, Colorado. in over five years. I am excited to head out with Duane, who is going to show me around his haunts. Last time I was here my partner was climbing a route called the Silver Surfer. I remember it was a blizzard and a white out all at the same time. I could barely see him lead the thin technical ice route. I stumbled my way up and enjoyed the full on conditions.
I think that tomorrow will be more of the same, the forecast looks snowy and cold.
