Here in the Pacific Northwest, we have been graced with some great climbing weather these past few weeks, and the forecast looks like it will continue for at least a little while longer. With such nice weather, there has been a lot of great climbing going on around here. This first clip is from a Labor Day ascent of Forbidden Peak, a great climb here in the North Cascades.
But I know there are some of you, yes an awesome, crazy few of you out there, who are looking forward to a change in the weather. You can hardly wait for the cold to come, the snow to start flying and that magical, wonderful ice to start forming. I didn't forget about you out there - I have a little something for you too. Here is a newly released edit of the highlights from this year's Ice Climbing World Cup in Saas Fee, Switzerland. Hopefully this will feed your icy need for a little bit.
Have a great weekend!
