Alex, Michael, and Scott all flew out for 4 days of ice climbing in Ouray, Colorado.

On day 1 we went to the Ice Park.  We refreshed some rusty skills and learned some new ones while climbing some great pitches of ice!  At the end of the day we did a short multi-pitch to get warmed up for some multi-pitch backcountry ice the following days.

On day two we climbed Dexter Slabs just North of Ouray.  It was a low visability day but we got it done and had a great time doing it!

Day three found us climbing at the Skylight Area where we climbed a few ice routes and then got on a mixed route to let the guys see what dry tooling was all about.  I’m pretty sure everyone slept great that night.  Well, everyone except Alex who was kept up by his new born daughter Zoey.

On day four Alex opted out of climbing because of sleep deprivation.  So Scott, Michael and I headed back to the Skylight Area to to climb a route called Choppo’s Chimney, then headed back to the Ice Park  for a few more pitches to finish off the arms.

Great trip guys!  I hope to climb with you all again!
