After a wax and wane of December weather, the conditions here in SW Colorado are balancing out very nicely. Everything that traditionally comes in has formed fantastic shape and some more allusive climbs have come in as well.
The Ice park is also in great form, even after 1000 climbers came through here just this past weekend for the Ouray Ice Festival. Our current IMG program has been having a blast climbing this years ice. Tomorrow we venture to take on several of the backcountry climbs.
In a nut shell, we are in full swing with great climbing conditions and the weather looks to be holding this pattern for now. Even sunny days are currently cold making for great climbing on sunny aspects too.
Come on down; we have more ice that we have time to climb.
