JoJo Posted September 22, 2004 Share Posted September 22, 2004 Greetings anxious ice fiends, The mountains around Bozeman and the Beartooths recently received their third significant snow storm of the fall. It could be a good ice season ahead. Still about a month away from climbable ice but it's looking better than it has in years. We need some more melt-freeze for a few alpine things and a cold snap for the main ice climbs. Cross yer fingers. I thought many folks might be interested in a new guide book available November 8, 2004. Any feedback or support is appreciated. "Winter Dance. Select Ice Climbs in Southern Montana & Northern Wyoming" by Joe Josephson. It includes 300 routes in 320 pages with 380 photos. 6" x 9" - full color throughout. The book is dedicated to Alex Lowe with a Foreword by Mark Twight. Areas covered are: Madison Range (Sphinx & Big Sky), Hyalite Canyon, Pine Creek, the Beartooths, South Fork of the Shoshone River (Cody) and Cooke City. Perhaps the most anticipated aspect of the book is that the Cody area finally has detailed route and approach information in addition to several condition report web sites. Hyalite now has detail on many more options as well. Thanks for the time and pray for an arctic front. Cheers, JoJo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
