pffft.... in about 11 weeks we'll get decent temps for rockclimbing. ice is fun and all but winter is about a lot of rock and a little ice for variety, not 6 months of the crags being snowed in :)

Solo'd r&d (wi4) on Oct 31st three yrs ago Oct 28th two yrs ago, and had to work this year, but I tried to climb it on the 18th, and it woulda gone no problem, but it would've been nice to have someone holding the end of the rope that day

6 Months of great rock (waiting for the ice to come back, and friends leaving you at the bar because "You talk about Ice climbing to much"), 1 month of hiking in everywhere just to see the Ice forming, then......... 5 months of Hell frozen over.... The Typical Year (with 5 perfect months).
Can't wait!!!!!

....helps if you're in the right place to start climbing from the end of October.... lucky buggers!.... Over here in Australia the ice season is in 'peak', with unfortunately TOO much snow covering most of the good 'lines'.... buddy of mine was up at Blue Lake last weekend and said the major ice flows were half buried..... blahhhhh..... one of them took his board and had more of a blast than the rest down the chutes.....
....anyway, shoud be on the east coast (VA) through december and hope to find some ice there..... (hope :? )

Just came down from Lake Louise after climbing with German and Cliffraven - Must say I was scoping our potential ice the entire time. Look me up when the season begins - untill then I will be getting pumped on some more 5-10's. Training time for ice is now!!! ~ Greg

I haven't been on rc.com in a while but I was starting to think that I was one of the only people that was looking forward to ice and snow again!!!! Next time I go climbing I'm bringing the axes out for some dry tooling!!

Snowed right down to tree line last night. That means it's getting colder. When it gets cold it turns the water to ice. Ice is fun to climb. 8^) :D

Calling for snow level around 4500 ft down here in Montana, and getting colder. Still have rock on the mind but ice in the soul. Mixed routes will be in soon enough and can do both. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I may have to get new tools this season due to the thrashing mine have taken in the passed on the mixed stuff.
