I picked up ice climbing last year and got some gear this summer. Looking for partners. I'm an experienced rock climber with only about 5 days of ice experience but I have gear (tools, crampons and all the regular climbing stuff). PM me if you are interested.

Anyone looking for a partner? I've been dabbling at ice for a couple years now and I finally got some gear. I'm an experienced rock climber with only about 5 days of ice experience but I have gear. PM me if you are interested.

I heard that ice is ready to climb at Mt. Lincoln. Breckenridge received 30 inches of snow so I'm not sure what the hike in will be like since I have never climbed there. Can anyone give me beta about the hike in? And also, anyone interested in climbing there Friday and/or Sunday?

Thrilling, exciting, ones. But only the ones with ice.

I assume you guys are talking about the new bolts on the upper pitch of Mickey's? They are pretty silly. That'll be a fun place to rescue people with broken ankles.

Not sure about the broken ankles, but the bolts are rather poorly placed. The only thing i can think is that they are planning on the ice to fill in and they placed the bolts to be sheltered from the ice. As a drytool problem, it's kind of fun, but on lead the difficulties wouldn't be very well protected. Especially the top out on the slab, it would suck to fall off the top with the bolt well below the overhang. And that is certainly the crux.

The new anchor bolts are nicely located for the column.

That's pretty much what I was alluding to. The average Clear Creek ice climber isn't a mixed master.

Agreed.

I'm pretty sure that the first "ascent" party (builders) climbed that column at night, blindfolded and drunk with a lit sparkler up ones ASS! Just for the record.

Yeah I hear ya, regardless of the existance of mixed masters or not, it appears to be just bad bolting.

If you guys are talking about where I think you are I saw those bolts, they were to the climbers left of the ice. The line looked retarded but when I topped out, I saw some PVC pipe re-routing some water from the crik in the direction of the bolts, I dunno what is going on up there, probably just drunken shennanigans.

TIRED OF SOLOING? Anyone interested in some weekday climbing? I'm looking for partners for moderate ice for day trips from Denver. I've been climbing ice for a few years, comfortable leading WI3-4 but have trouble finding partners during the week.
