Ice, Ice, and more Ice!

It's been an awesome couple months of non-stop ice climbing here in the Rockies! Due to prioritizing climbing over computers, breaking 2 cameras, and just being super busy in general, I haven't posted anything here for quite some time. So, without any further delay, here is some pics from the last couple months. This is only a sampling of the routes I've been climbing & guiding, but there were some good ones for sure!

Terry from Scotland on Finishing Hammer Gully in February.

Mythological (WI6), the best route in the Okanagan. I never thought I'd drive all the way to the Okanagan to go ice climbing, but this route was well worth the drive!

Climbing in Grotto Canyon on the Ice Skills Week in February. It was an awesome week with everyone learning to lead climb, mixed climb, and multipitch!

Shawn on one of his first ever leads during the Ice Skills Week!

My Daddy's a Psycho (WI5+) beside Murchison Falls. This is one of the best routes I've guided this season, super fun!

On top of these trips, I've had lots of super fun guests over the last couple months, and appreciate everyone making the effort to get out ice climbing with me in the Rockies this winter!
