So, a friend and I went to Starved Rock to do some ice climbing last weekend. We knew the weather was a little on the warm side so, it was known that the ice could be too thin to climb. As you can guess a sign on the sign-in sheet said no climbing Ice is too thin. We took a hike down to french canyon and found the ice quite thick. I can't put the pictures I took on this message but, check my profile to see pics of the ice
Anyway has this ever happened to any of you?? I was a nice hike but, I came to climb:(
That fracture mid-way might make me apprehensive. It's not that the ice is too thin, it's that the ice is big, heavy, and [b]possibly[b] coming apart. You don't want to be there if anything comes down.
