Many Times - Good Times

Climbed there many times... Easy access... Nice people... Share your rope please...

The main wall never really came in this year... Strange... Everything else was fat...

Virgin De-Flowered!  Sucess!

Holy cow! I can't thank the "team" enough for getting me on the ice for the first time! Miguel, Andrew, Dave, Fred and Tina were a blast to climb with and totally patient with my new ass. From what I recall, I climbed a few WI3 routes on the Main Wall...according to Miguel's book. Loved it!

That was February? Yup.

We went to Bard-Harrington on Saturday and it was downright tropical and the ice was plastic, a good place for me to learn. Sunday, well that was a different story. It wasn't super cold, but it was snowing and Chouinard was crowded.
