Kirk Couloir Challenger Peak
Let's get this thing rolling . . . thinking, training, dry tooling, fantasizing, anything . . . with the new snow (or even old snow), has anyone seen any new (or remaining) ice to jump on?

Its a sickness!
However, It wont be long until the high peaks get their first dusting. Shortly there after the temps begin to plummet, The winds start to whip and dreams of alpine ecstasy fill the mind.
But for now, DEAD HANGS, DEAD HANGS and more DEAD HANGS!
Much like a wolf with the first taste of blood, fear i have tasted, and now i thirst for more!

Lows hovering at or near the freezing point in the high country.
Water molecules are slowing down and starting to bond together.

Hope for an early and long winter.

That picture showed a LOT of snow on Pikes. Anybody been up around Total Abandon? With that big dump, it should be pretty fat.

You people are all sick. I'm lighting candles to all the gods I can think of to prolong the summer and fall. Hopefully into January.

Too bad the Big Thompson Canyon is impassable & will be for some time washed into the Big T River...

Took the tools for a walk up to the north side of Quandry and came up empty handed. This area is usually a good ice indicator for early season. But... there is a good solid dusting and it was cold and windy. One route to keep a close eye on is North Star.

Winter park and Loveland got snow and Aspen got snow as low as 8,000 ft. Pikes peak looks great to! Plus there is a larger colder storm coming in this weekend. Let the season begin!

Went up to Mt. Evans and climbed the chimney between Ozark Prom Queen and Ozark Backwoods on the west buttress. The Aprons and cliffs above Summit Lake are the driest they have been all season. I think that during the "mega storm" that the tops of the high peaks were above the clouds, but any cliff below 13,000ft is wet and holds potential once it gets colder.

For at least 10 years, mid-Sept/early Oct would roll around and I would get an email from Jack Roberts about what have I heard, have I climbed anything yet...

Now another year has past, looks like we are all be on our own to do all of those approaches, instead of emailing Jack. Jack Roberts was CO ice climbing at its finest, always knew who got the seasonal FA, who had climbed what that season, and always let you know that your hopeful FA was already climbed.

Another year of missing Jack
