Climbing Ice at Lincoln

We had planned an epic weekend of skiing and ice climbing in Summit County. On saturday we headed to Lincoln Falls, on Hoosier Pass above Breckenridge, and climbed some ice. Apryle and Andrew swapped leads in the Bowling Alley, Matt and John flailed on their first top-rope attempt and improved dramatically thereafter, and Emily froze. It actually wasn’t too cold, compared to last year when Andrew, Apryle, John and I first climbed at the area.

At the end of the day I led a nice but chopped up flow to the right of a STEEP pillar. It looked a lot harder than it ended up being, but still I was happy to spend some time on the sharp end.

One big bummer from the day was that I cracked a tooth on a tortilla chip in the morning, so I ended up having my wisdom teeth out later in the week. Miserable.
