Intro Ice Weekend!

Learning to Ice Climb at King Creek on Sunday.

Just finished up another fun & succesfull Intro Ice Weekend with three guests from Vancouver/Squamish & two from Fort McMurray. On the first day everyone was so enthusiastic that we even climbed while eating lunch! I think everybody had about 25 climbs during the day!

On day 2, everyone was understandably a bit sore & tired but climbed non-stop anyways. We had King Creek almost to ourselves which was a nice treat!

At the base of the second pitch on Guinness Gully.

The three guys from the coast stuck around to do a multipitch climb on Monday so we headed to the classic Guinness Gully near Field, BC. On the first two pitches we climbed 1 at a time and then for the final 60m step we tied two ropes together and made a mega-toprope so that everyone could have a couple turns. It was great fun and the climb was in excellent conditions.

Loving it on the last pitch of Guinness Gully!
Hopefully everyone continues to pursue climbing and it would be great to see them again in the future!
