Ouray Ice Festival 2011

I had a fantastic time visiting Ouray, Colorado this year. Mostly because it wasn’t minus bizillion and the ice was plastic pleasure! I also, as usual, thoroughly enjoyed hanging and climbing with talented fun folks from all over.

Great weather for spectators and participants

It was incredibly rewarding to NOT fall off the competition route in 0.5 seconds, which has happened in previous years. I love climbing and so to be able to climb a great route in the competition and enjoy it for approximately 17 minutes blew away my expectations.

Come on... find the hold...

ahhh, found the hold and on my feet

having a blast : )

I also climbed other routes in the park and out, and worked Chicks with Picks – more stories to come…
