A jolly group consisting of Aaron, Chris, Greg, Holland, Jule, Mark, Marcie, Ryan, Tom, and Sidney the dog, braved mist and moisture to climb ice on the Coleman last Saturday (Oct. 19).
It took some looking around (during which we found an amazing, bottomless waterfall) to locate the perfect crevasse a few hundred feet out on the glacier. Its upper part was soft and forgiving, while the bottom 20 feet consisted of hard, vertical to overhanging blue ice which elicited a firework of flailing, grunting and scraping. We had a well balanced mixture of beginners, pretenders like me, and people who actually knew what they were doing - everybody learned something. Certain people even got this strange glow in their eyes, and it became shockingly obvious that they too had succumbed to this dangerous affliction. It took only one experience, and they were hooked.

Ice climbing - talk to your children about it before someone else does.

Oh, I left out Lizzy! She also went, but was omitted from the quickly typed second version.
I had to retype the trip report because the first time I tried to submit it it got destroyed ("fatal database error"). Scary, huh.

You're a jinx Jule :D I don't know about anybody else that has had anywhere close to the trouble you've had with this board...
