The Climbing Team

For those of you outside the greater Yellowstone Region. The climbing team was featured in today's Outdoor section of the Billings Gazette.

It took me two years to forget how much fun the approach to California Ice was. Kenny and I went up Saturday, Yup, it's still a beartooth blast! A good long day out, with some spicy weather to finish off the day.

It's 5 in the morning and I need to sleep

Here's the only photo that really turned out from our tromping around in december trying to do nothing. We started hiking at midnight with only a couple hours sleep between us. We learned to get more sleep for the next time out.

New year, new software, new look. Check out that expanding archive!

Future Ice Climbers of America

My younger brother Jeff was in town, so we ran up a couple pitches down in Cody. Kick off the New Year with a three day cardio climbing punch.

Lame December and the Year in Review

I am now running with the new version of Blogger. Watch for aesthetic changes.

December of 2006 was laced with illness and the holidays. In terms of climbing there was a whole lot of hiking and very little climbing. Twice we went in, only to turn around. I have been and will be coaching the local climbing team for the next few months. I can say the kids have improved quite a bit from day one. Looking back at 2006 I can think of a couple routes to highlight.

Spring Loaded in Valdez, Alaska

The Bearcrack in the Beartooths

Glacier Lake Headwall in the Beartooths

To those that have joined me on a route or two this past year, thanks for the great times and may 2007 have more successes than 2006.
