Things are going about as well as they could be in the Ouray Ice Park this winter. Here are some photos Justin Merle & Andy Polloczek sent in from a recent climb with a private group. These photos were taken in Silverton, where the party went to climb ‘Whorehouse Hoses’. The weird looking tunnel they walked thru was actually an old avalanche of ice from spring of 2019 that built up a lot of debris and lasted through the summer. A creek melted this tunnel through the ice and then stopped running this winter so they could use it as an easy access route!
If you haven’t already signed up for your Ouray adventure with IMG, now is the perfect time!
