Ouray Ice Festival 2013

Ouray Ice Fest 2013

We had the opportunity to attend this years Ice Fest in Ouray, Colorado. It was a blast, we saw friends from 4 different states and made new ones. This is a whole other ball game from normal rock climbing, the temperature barely climbed the single digit's in temperature the whole weekend! Talk about a cold snap! Although it was unusually cold we had a blast and hope to be back next year! 

The gear tents. (yeah, free demo gear!)
