Just brilliant! what is this rated? If you go to the ice festival, do you get to try new gear out?
I think all of the routes in this area are WI5. There are bolt anchors for all of them so it's real easy to throw down a TR and have at it. I have not been to the festival, but I've heard that gear demos are part of it. I've also heard that if you want to climb a bunch, then don't go during the fest because of the crowds.
