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.

Well done!

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.

Re: Well done!

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.

Re: Transition

DNF is an acronym for "Data Not Found."

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

Re: Very impressive!

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!

Re: Nice photo!

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 :)

DNF

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.

Re: DNF

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.

Re: DNF

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

Re: DNF

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 !

Re: DNF

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

Re: DNF

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!
