We saw some great images from the #ourayicefestival last week thanks to @timbanfield. But the real story was 13 year old Keenan Griscom placing 13th overall in a comp with no categories for age and ability. Watch out winners, this guy is gunning for ya! // #ouraycolorado @ourayicepark @camp1889 #iceclimbing#ice#coloradoice
I never thought I would take the sport of climbing and turn it into direct competition, but I am amazed that it is exactly the competition that is transforming me into the athlete I'm striving to become. The process to becoming better is so exciting, I can hardly wait to see where it will take me. Ouray was so much fun giving it everything I had. Can't wait for the next event! Huge thanks to @timbanfield for capturing these great images! #kavu#camp_usa#patagonia_climb#tbt#wanderlust#wildernessculture#ourayicefestival
Among her many talents, my friend and climbing partner Bailey (@brbatchelor) is a badass photographer. Check out the link in my bio to her blog post on our recent trip to the Ouray Ice Festival and check out her work on Instagram!#ourayicefestival#ourayicepark#iceclimbing#adventurebang
Props to CAMP/Cassin athlete Scott Bennett (@ropeandsummit) for getting out of his big mountain comfort zone and throwing his hat in the ring for the #Ouray Ice Comp. // #colorado#ourayicefestival#iceclimbing#ice //
Thanks Tim Banfield (@timbanfield) for the great photos!
Now a week ago I’m finally getting around to posting a few shots from the Ouray Ice Fest. As always this place was crawling with next level climbing talent!
Internationally-renowned Canadian ice climber @realwillgadd (who became the first person in the world to scale a frozen Niagara Falls in January 2015) finishes in 5th place overall in last Saturday’s 23rd Annual Ouray Ice Festival Elite Mixed Climbing Competition. #iceicebaby
@lasportivana athlete and FMG co-owner Karsten Delap just got back from the @ourayicepark ice fest! If you missed him there you can catch him next week at the @mwv_icefest or two weeks after at the @michiganicefest . Also be sure to check out the @foxmountainguides New Hampshire ice programs that @karstendelap will be running! @bluewaterropes
King of Stoke @davidroetzel gets one more pitch in at the Ouray Ice Fest. David pursues life with passion and steep ice with precision and supreme confidence... psyched to get out with him, @beth_goralski and @timmyoneill for the after-hours ice party.
Congrats to everyone who competed at the Ouray Ice Comp this past weekend and thanks Tim Banfield (@timbanfield) for some great photos! Here CAMP/Cassin athlete Jesse Huey (@jessehuey) uses some fancy maneuvering to punch through the opening moves of the crux. // @camp1889 #ourayicefestival#ourayicefest
