IMG Guides Cedric Gamble and Justin Merle welcomed in the new year with an early morning ascent of Gravity’s Rainbow, one of Ouray’s local classics. The climb faces south, so it takes cold/cloudy conditions for it to be climbable. It was a cold morning, but even so they were happy to be off the route before the sun hit.
Our ice climbing season in Ouray just started and the guides are psyched for good conditions and a fun season of climbing, soaking in the hot springs, and not having to sleep in a tent! With a large variety of ice terrain, Ouray is a wonderful place to learn to ice climb, or to hone the skills your already have.
