Five days of fun !  Sucess!

Climbed with Mike Busby for five days: Schoolroom, New Funtier, South Park, Scottish Gullies and the Shithouse Wall.

Led a couple of WI3's in South Park -- my first ice leads in three years.

--
Climbed with Steve for 3 days in Feb. 2009. Started in the Schoolroom, then moved on to South Park, New Funtier, and the Scottish Gullies areas.

--
Also spent 4 days here with Calvin Kilcrease in Feb. 2006 - areas included the Schoolroom, South Park, and New Funtier, mostly WI3-4. Incredible ice everywhere - I thought I had died and gone to heaven ...

Ice paradise  Sucess!

Climbed for three days (plus one route by headlamp the night we arrived) in Schoolroom, Grad School, New Funtier, Lower Bridge, Scottish Gullies, and South Park. I felt like we barely scratched the surface. Can't wait to go back.

Great climbing!  Sucess!

Headed down with Haliku and Axe. It was a great trip that provided more routes than we had time. Excited to return and put the new crampons to use.

Ouray Ice Park  Sucess!

14 routes in 2 days, great opportunity for Zach to gain a ton of experience in a short time. He was willing to do the driving, so how could I resist. We did two routes the night we got there completely in the dark with headlamps. He said that actually helped him more than just about anything. Can't wait to get some of the back country done in this area. Don't know if that will happen since I go to Canada so much, but I have to admit, it was nice climbing in 0+C for a change.

Good times!  Sucess!

I was out there for a Chicks with Picks clinic Feb 4-8 and had a blast! We climbed in the Schoolroom, South Park & Scottish Gullies. Everything from WI3-5. Great fun!

I'll definately head back out there as much as possible!

climb on and on and on  Sucess!

snow camped for 2 weeks and did every route in the guide and then some! were leading 2 levels stronger by the end. did some routes in the middle of night under a full moon. good photography practice for my friend...she took some good ones of us silouetted from the refletion of our lamp lights off the ice, surrounded by the glow of the moon off the ice. pretty cool.

Love Ouray  Sucess!

After Mark phoned & told me that he couldn't make it due to illness (I was in my truck on my way to Ouray at the time), I decided to go ahead & try anyway. It worked out, as I found Constance who'd just finished the lease on her apartment in SoCal & decided it was time for a break- i.e. go learn to ice climb in Ouray, then see where things take her. Thanks- I had a fun time! Loved just being there in the winter amidst the snowy beauty. The hot springs & haunted(?) Historic Western Hotel (great to meet you too Alina) were wonderful too! Can't wait to go back. TR'd at School Room as well as S. Park.

good stuff  Sucess!

Climbed for a couple days in Feb 2006. As I recall, we mainly spent our time in South Park and New Funtier.

Great spot. Unbelievable access to easy and hard stuff alike.

Don't remember the names of the routes we spent time on, except for one...N.A.M.B.L.A. How can you forget that one? My partner and I climbed it just cuz of the name!
