opening the frig  Sucess!

climbed the refrigerator with mike and milburn. super, classic line in a fantastically eerie setting splitting the middle of ice's north face. consistently 45 degrees with some 50+ sprinkled in along the way. the two, short 60+ degree bulges near the top are simply amazing!

climb this route!

One of my favorite climbs  Sucess!

Climbed this when I was still a newbie to the sport. Combined this with North Apostle on a fine Sawatch day. Great group with Kiefer, Brian, Ryan.

Fridge  Sucess!

Climbed with shanahan96, asphazell and altitude14er. Great snow conditions in the couloir, not so much on the standard route. Jamie and I ended up descending the standard route in a mix of snow and semi-loose rock. Below the crux it was all snow all the way back to the fridge and seeing as the snow was steady and our pace was good, we just kept going this way down. The standard route is pretty sketchy when its icy!

Combo w/North Apostle  Sucess!

Climbed this wonderful couloir, probably the best in all the Sawatch with Brian, Pete and Ryan. One sweet day with great weather.
Watch out for that 'Garbage Chute' though. We had some scary rockfall come down our way.

Nice, Long Day  Sucess!

Perfect snow and weather and company. Would do that daily if physically possible. Enjoy the route page, leave me a note if seasonal changes are needed.
