Ice Climbing JSC
It's that time a year I am out instructing courses for the local college, Johnson State. We spend three days climbing flows in Smugglers Notch and enjoying the unique alpine landscape of Mt Mansfield and Sterling mountain. Here is the crew ready to get after it on a super warm day for their first day on the ice.
This is the wonderful view of the beaver pond and down the valley towards the village of Jeffersonville from our practice slabs area.
Matt livin' the dream while enjoying some good sticks in the warm ice.
