I'll be the first to say I really really hate the snow, but ice... I love it. I don't know what it is about ice but it will always blow me away. It's hard to believe at one point it was just water. I can't put into words how spectacular my trip to Ouray was so here is a picture of one of the last climbs we did. It was 35 meters and had a little bit of everything from stemming to overhung. Enjoy.
