Description:

70 people signed-up for the Daughter of Ice trip shows a lot of interest and a lot of potential disappointment for the 60 people who won't be able to go. So I though that another ice climbing trip may help.

As this trip won't happen on a long weekend, it will reduce the amount of time we can spend at Marble canyon and will likely require to drive out Friday evening.

It will be a smaller trip than Daughter of ice, with a lot less supervision.To make sure that people get to climb as much as they can and keep things safe, I will only take participants who have outdoor rock climbing experience. You need to be proficient at belaying, tying-in, setting up top-ropes and cleaning anchors.

 As Matt wrote on the Daughter of Ice trip description, it can get quite cold over there so you will need to bring proper gear for camping and spending the day on ice. I encourage you to read his trip description and go over all the gear he listed. I will only censor selfie-sticks and go-pros.
This is what climbing at Marble canyon will hopefully look like:
