The Fang
Vail Colorado 1996, At that point of the climb the ice was melting so much I felt like I was in a rain storm, when I got to the top I was soaked from head to the inside of my boots . Gortex was soaked lucky my pile clothing still kept me warm.

The year was 1996. I got absolutely soaked on this climb. It felt like it was raining I could only look up for a few seconds without getting water in my eyes. It was my second climb done at the Vail amphatheater. That is awonderful place for ice and mixed climbin

This kicks ass! Doesn't even really look like the top is in on this photo! You are nuts!!! The Fang didn't even come in this year, fell over twice! Hope I can try in next ice season when my skills are a little better and the ice is fatter. Nice shot.

What more can be said about the Fang a classic by all standards. and yes the top part was seperated by about 3 to 4 feet. Still one of my favorite climbs any time I climb it.
