I got to swing the tools this weekend. I will post pics as soon as I get a chance. RMNP is having a very lean year but there is ice to be had.

just a heads up to those who climb in the south fork. coldfear reported that the moratorium was touching down last friday. it's probably melted out again right now, but it's a great sign.

Moratorium is still in. Many things in the valley are starting to look really, really good. Where they should have been a month ago. Stringer, apparently is super, super fat, but we will find out tomorrow. Bozos is the biggest I have ever seen it. Save it for Later, High On Boulder, and Moonrise are all in, and very large. Not quite to the point of all coming together, but close.
