Bridger Ice climbing: The Cottonmouth

I think it was Jeff Lee and I getting in some laps after work. I have climbed more pitches of ice in the dark than I have the light!

Absaroka Caving: Boulder River Ice Cave

Lucas rapped into this cave and noticed a giant flow of ice in it. Well that sounds like a FA ice climb to me! So we went back and tried to send a trad route up to it instead of hiking WAY around to the top of it and rapping in. We got to the ledge to the looker's right of the cave but couldnt get near it. Oh, we'll be back.

Lucas after the failed bid to climb up to the cave. Notice the nice strawberry below his left eye? You can thank a 0.5 BD for popping out after he gave it a little test jerk and punching himself really hard in the face. I actually got my first taste of the screaming barfies on this climb. When I got to the belay, I just leaned forward and screamed as the blood flow came back into my hands. It was uncontrollable. It was almost weird. But heck did it hurt!
