It looks like the idea of climbing ice in the rockies has gained some reputable interest making it necessary to implement some sort of ride organization scheme. The wiki is an attempt at that. Its mostly just a copy of Alfred's page for new years at Phelix.

My plan is to climb ice in the Rockies for pretty much the entire winter break. For me thats leaving Dec 12th (ish) and returning Jan 5th (ish) but by the looks of it I will be cycling through a list of partners coming and going. Some people might even be planning on doing a few days of skiing in the Rockies. Crazy, I know. Overall everyone will pretty much be doing their own thing within their car. We will probably be pretty limited on gear and people who are experienced on ice (i.e. can lead) so some communal cragging days may be in order. Ice is also considerably easier to second than to lead so even if you have never climbed ice before there is a pretty good chance you can second anything anyone in the VOC is willing to lead.


Nobody is actually organizing this. This is not instructional. People coming to climb ice should at the very least know how to climb rock and have basic mountaineering knowledge. Car groups should be self-sufficient. This isn't even really a trip, just a list of people who happen to be going to the Rockies at some point during Dec/Jan and would like to sort out rides.
