Winter Ice Climbing

Just posting up a few pictures of some recent days on ice. Last week I went up to Hidden Falls in RMNP with some friends and tried to play nice with the other ice climbers all waiting to get on a bit of frozen water. The ice was nice, the weather was a bit chilly, though. An easy approach in a good setting with a nice meal afterwards always makes for a great day. This afternoon I headed out to Clear Creek Canyon in Golden to lead a few ice routes with a friend. Temps were much nicer, we had the place mostly to ourselves although the ice was a bit brittle. Too bad my camera ran out of batteries after the first picture!
