Snow and ice climbing practice


Due to the Gnarl Ridge fire, we shifted the annual ice climb to the upper White River Glacier. Following a day on rock at Pete's Pile, Kipp, Kendall, Fritz and Doug played in the huge crevasses up above Palmer on Sunday, 9/28/08. The day was warm and the ice was superb. Kipp and Kendall are in the lower right corner of the first, wide shot.
