MWV Ice Fest 2017

What a fantastic weekend at the annual Mount Washington Valley Ice Festival in North Conway - it went by way too quickly! Wanted to sign up for the Outdoor Research Women's Steep Ice Climbing clinic last year but I was too late. This year I made sure I signed up early, as the all-women's clinics usually fill up quickly. I met and ice climbed with some wonderful women. And we were guided by some of the very best in the industry, Majka Burhardt and Emilie Drinkwater. Also got to demo Petzl Nomic ice tools and Darts crampons. Really loved the Nomics....easy to swing and remove. The Darts took a bit to get used to but after a while, it felt like my dual point Lynx. Enjoy some photos taken of our day!
