Ouray Waterfall Ice

MM Guide Matt Barela just finished our first waterfall ice climbing trip in Ouray. Here are some some words and photos to whet your appetite for the winter season. Sharpen your tools, tighten your harness, and bring your puffy's ice climbing season!    Jeremy Allyn, North America Program Director

Ice Climbing in Ouray, Mountain Madness Style!

Special thanks to MM client Andres Cardona, who wrote this guest post for us!

Sometimes in our lives we all catch a break and call it good timing, but sometimes its brilliant timing. 

That would be the case in my recent trip to Colorado, where not only did I get to enjoy the 15th annual Ouray Ice Climbing festival, but also learn firsthand the techniques of the trade from Mountain Madness guide David Ahrens, in a 3 day Ice climbing school, follow by a weekend of skiing and snowboarding with friends from Tampa. So yeah, the timing, it was more than good.
