It's the leaning tower of ice! Or maybe the angle the pic was taken at is making it look that way.

All in all, looks fun.

yes, as it gets thicker leading is an option. You bring the gear and you should be good to go. Should be good this weekend.

Let us know when you want to come out and give it a go..... 708-341-3255: Joel

11cm screws most likely,,may not be deep enough yet for 17cm anywhere without punching through or hitting concrete. Depends on the quality of the freeze-up each time we have to restart between thaws.

what do you guys use for a nozzle at the top. I have been playing around with some different types for my home ice wall, but havent found the perfect combo yet. Yours is looking good!

We are using old garden hoses with small holes drilled in them...mostly. A misting nozzle helps too.

Pix from today and tonight under the lights

If you are not here climbing.... you are missing out BIGTIME!!

Check out our video shot when the ice was new and thin and no snow on the ground. Nice climbing though:

I don't know why some people are being such dicks to the OP. Get a life. Speaking as someone who has lived in both climbing paradise and climbing hell (currently London), I'd sure go check this place out if it was all I had (and I don't even ice climb).



Word! Just sayin.
Some people are squatty little nozzles who feel closer to man size when they're able to take shots from afar.

Sweet outfit. You need a disco ball up there. . . that'd turn ya some profits! Shit, you be pumpin a disco ball, I rollin out der' maself!

Me and the offspring walking back to the car after a day of cragging.

I've never climbed ice, but you can bet your ass I'd be there just to try that out if I was anywhere close. That's probably the coolest home setup I've ever seen.

Thanks MF' /;-) It's a real fun job. I've seen bigger ones done many years ago, but don't think they've kept up on the effort as much as we have here the last 2 winters. We peaked with last weekends conditions so far this season; hope to grow it bigger and better into Feb. if possible.

Makes me miss my old outdoor 20' wall. Good job.
