Sundance WI4
One very long (70 m) rope length WI4 or WI5 . The climb is visible from the Hwy 550.
Descend by walking off to the right.

Waterfall was still not completely formed, and ice was a little bit thin and soft at some sections.

Super photo- surprised it is this way so early in the season, but I'm not from CO so I really don't know any better.

Actually I'd like to see the photo of you in your meeting at work in all your ice gear.

Thank you Chad, the ice was not the best yet, and waterfall is still forming, so we did not go to its top yet.
:) no photos of me in my ice climbing gear from Medical staff meeting...I left ice tools in my car, did not want to scare them too much.

DNF is an acronym for "Data Not Found."

Nice picture anyway.. and so dangerous. : ))

Hi Eric,
I did not even noticed that it is POTD until I read your comment. Thank you, but it is not really dangerous. It is fun!

Thank you. Yes, I am lucky - I can go ice climbing in the mountains or rock climbing in the desert, and all in less than 1-1.5 hr of driving. One of the reason I live in western Colorado :)

Direct North Face. It is a climb on a peak in Mineral Creek close to Silverton. I think it is peak 12,579 or something like that. It is a long, multi-pitch, mostly moderate ice route that is one of the first to form in the area.

Sorry Larry, I developed ADD before I read everyone's reply. It was my first lead, and sadly I didn't finish the dang thing.

If I drive illegally, I could easily rock climb and ice climb in the same day. OK, legal/no legal very close.

No worries, Robin!

In my next life, I'd like to return as a Raven. Then, I could FLY from place-to-place,
without having to buy gasoline and pay taxes !

Larry, why don't you buy an electric car? flying could be dangerous, especially after drinking.

Electric cars? They cost too much..

Liba, are you still a Doctor? What does ADD
mean, and WHY does Robin always use those silly acronyms??

I hate acronyms! Our world has too many of
those disgusting letters that nobody understands.
Down with acronyms.. and, UP with mountains!
