Lost In The Forest, Frankenstein Cliff - Ice Climbing

Image
Leading the right side of Drip In The Woods We took a look at Willey's Slide from the road and although there was blue ice, there was a lot of snow on the left and bottom of the slide. Plus it was super windy. So Nuno and I opted to check out Frankenstein Ice. Good choice - we stuck to the sheltered Lost In the Woods area. We hiked up to the base of the ice cliffs and there were a pair just finishing up. I led the right side of Lost In The Woods (WI2) and set up a top rope anchor, and Nuno and I climbed a couple of laps. Since the left side was full of snow, we just climbed laps on the center and right sides. Then I led the right side of Drip In The Woods (WI4) and set up a top rope anchor so we could finish up on the steep curtain. Warm, lots of sun and a good day for ice climbing!  Thanks, Nuno for your help and support for my  "Turning 60 and Climbing About It"  project - at this point, a little more than halfway to my 60-pitch climbing goal!  Nuno on Drip
