“Where are you ice climbing?”
I’ve heard that question countless times in the past few weeks. With sunny days temperatures that remind people of spring break in the mountains, it was a warm and dry January. But, the ice is still there and in many cases is doing great.
Here’s a quick look at conditions in our area. As usual, give us a call at 970-319-0656 if we can help you out with some ice climbing.
Elsewhere in our area:
Redstone: Hayes (out), Avocado Gully (in), Redstone Pillar (in), The Drool (in but thin). Much of Redstone has struggled with the warm weather of late, particularly if it gets direct sun but there is plenty to do that stays sheltered and stuff like Tomato Chimney looks great. Avocado has been doing wonderful and is in great shape right now although it is in typical thin form. Check out a look at Avocado through January here.
In the Glenwood area, Hidden Falls is reportedly in the worst shape ever for January although it has been getting climbed.
