Itinerary:
Let's go climb some ice. I would like to go to Wedge or Junkyards- something with easy ice I can lead and harder ice I can practice my technique on. They are also nice places to get out mid week, when there are no crowds.
Beginners are welcome, but you must be a solid lead belayer and have the gear. Depending on the experience level of people who sign up, I may slightly modify the group size.
The weather could be very hot, so be prepared for wet ice. We will also need to be very careful of any kind of hanging daggers.
On the off-chance it gets ridiculously warm (>10C) or the weekend 10mm of rain moves up to Friday daytime, I may cancel this. However, 5C and sunny sounds like generally pleasant conditions to me!
Required Items to Bring:
Ice axe, crampons, helmet, ALL THE GLOVES, warm coats, lots of layers, food, snacks

Recommended Items to Bring:
Any screws you own

How to Get There:
