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!

Yea, you heard me.....gonna get my ice climb on at the 2013 Mount Washington Valley Ice Festival! This will be my first time attending the ice festival as well as taking an ice climbing clinic. The fest is hosted by IME (International Mountain Equipment) and takes place Feb 1-3, 2013 in North Conway, NH. I'm really looking forward to this event, actually I'm totally psyched! I'll be taking a climbing clinic from two guest guides; Art Mooney and Emilie Drinkwater and also have the op to meet other ice climbers. There will be videos, shows, free food and oh-la-la, lots of gear demos!! Bringing my camera and hope to get lots of photos! Ice-ice baby!
