Moss Slab Wall, Stonehouse Pond - Ice Climbing

Swing those ice tools!

Met up with Adam for some laps at the Moss Slab in Stonehouse Pond. Also met some new climbing friends, Kyle and Autumn - thanks for letting us use your excess anchor rope! Today's temps were cold and with the recent rain, the ice was soft and there was running water in a couple of spots. But still some good climbing laps to be had! With good chilly weather coming, the ice here should set up real nicely for the coming weekend! And thanks Adam for your help and support for my "Turning 60 and Climbing About It" project!


Kick those feet in!

Autumn's 2nd time on ice, swinging and kicking it!

The Gun Club - Rock Climbing





Limestone Tingle: numbness in fingers and hands from climbing sharp limestone

Did some cragging at The Gun Club. Located in the La Madre range, it's a small canyon with a short and easy approach. But don't go letting this canyon fool ya! Its limestone walls may be short, but da buggah is super, super sharp! It was fun, very warm, and practically all the Vegas climbers were out there. This nicely bolted sport crag is a good alternative while waiting for the sandstone at Red Rock Canyon to dry out. We climbed in the section with climbs in the 5.6 to 5.10 range. I got an easy lead in on Mini-Gun (5.6), and TR'd the rest of the day. Enjoy a few photos taken of my day climbing the Right (North) Wall of The Gun Club!

Kinsman Notch – Ice Climbing


Kinsman Notch Ice Climbing 


Getting out to ice climb every weekend is such a blast! Now that winter is winding down, I keep hoping that the cold temps will continue so I can get outdoors to enjoy whatever ice I can. Today there was a small group of us met up to climb at Kinsman Notch. The temps were pretty mild and that can only mean one thing - some MELLOW climbing! Here are a few photos taken of our day.
