fourteenfour Posted March 2, 2015 Share Posted March 2, 2015 Trip: Telluride & Silverton, CO - Ames Ice Hose - Ames Ice Hose Date: 12/18/2014 Trip Report: Trying to do a better job of sharing here….better late than never. Early season my friend Dallen and I drove from SLC late Wednesday for a 3 day ice climbing trip on some CO ice. Slept just off hwy90 somewhere between Moab and Telluride. Early rise Thursday morning had us at the Ames Power Station and on the trail. The base was very fat….what was usually an WI5/M6 start was just a nice hunk of steep ice. Dallen got after the first pitch - His first climb of the season. The spin drift was unrelenting and showered non-stop. After joining him at the top of pitch one we swapped leads. Day 02 we checked out Silverton and since there were already a few parties on Bridal Veil we climbed a short mixed route directly across from BV…not sure the name. Fun and rampy. Day 03 we wrapped up the trip with an early start on Bridal Veil Another classic CO route. This was my first time climbing in CO and it didn't disappoint. - Michael Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
