Climbed in Provo Canyon. Not as much of a disaster as I expected but the ice is looking a little haggard.

It's true--brought to you EXCLUSIVELY by NO STAR TUESDAY, the 3rd Annual Superbowl-GWI-BBQ. No glass please, only 3.2 beer in cans; also, please be mindful of recent access developments having mainly to do with new parking restrictions near the power plant. Carpooling from the Park and Ride at the mouth of LCC might be a fine idea... See you there!

I heard there is some gear swapping that usually happens?

1st pitch of backoff has sheared off and there is a fracture on squash head at the start of the second pitch that runs about 3/4 of the way across the flow. Heads up. Also getting to the anchors at the top was a little sketchy with running water and the rock slab

i think you have gear swapping confused with beer swapping.

Chuck Norris can Divide by Zero

It makes for a friendly party. Wall to wall dude sandwich with a couple of other dudes girlfriends thrown in as a condiment.

Pack your mountain axe with a adze and just cut yourself a ledge.

Any advice for a 4 day ice climbing trip this coming weekend? Coming from 4 corners area and looking for grade 4-6 routes within a couple hours of salt lake. Flying into salt lake. Thanks!

Wow, Um I know its a little farther, but with that kind of time frame, I could get into a lot of trouble in the Wind River Range. More ice than,,,, a place with a lot of ice. Take a SPOT or PLB because you would have the place to yourself. Same goes for the Sawtooth range. The first to pioneer the area didn't have guide books.

Well, instead of wandering around Wyoming or Idaho (ha ha), you could warm up in Provo Canyon on the popular stuff (Stairway,Finger of Fate, Millers, Fang, White Nightmare, etc). Spend a day in Santaquin poking around. If Maple is still ok (super warm last weekend) hit that, if Maple isn't in, reload by driving to Huntington Canyon and hit Inspired by Gravity, then finish up in Joes, or, head back to Provo to wrap up your trip.

We have a bit of weather coming that should produce some snow on Friday night. Could see a foot or more in the hills, with, some wind loading. Watch for avy conditions. Especially in Santaquin.

Report on conditions when you're done!
