Great fun - thanks Sean and everyone else that attended for getting me back on the ice! Here's what summitpost has to say about Coors Lite: http://www.summitpost.org/clear-creek-canyon-ice-climbs-colorado/166710

Just arrived at Safeway, light blue TSX.
So 9 am Safeway or meet us in the canyon Little Eiger area 4 miles from the canyon entrance anytime..... [masked] not sure if i'll have service though once im past tunnel 1
Awesome, I may meet you guys in the canyon if it doesn't get too late, otherwise have fun and I'll meet you next time!
Do you mind if a newbie joins you? I have a significant amount of rock experience, but no real ice experience so to speak.

Hey Jeff we're trying to go early so if your in Safeway a little before 9 or you can meet us in the canyon anytime
I've only heard from 2 people on going early?? It's beautiful out right now LOL Would love to meet at Safeway a little before 9 and head into the canyon. Anyone up to go early??
Can do. Give me a call at 97o22seven 683two regardless.
Hey all,, I am still planning on going in the morning unless it is just stupid bad tomorrow. There were three lines all within a half mile of each other last week but not sure if they are all still good. [masked] is me. I'm planning on 10 since that is what I told everyone but if everyone wants to go at 9 great just let me know....

I could go at 9
I'm flexible if it's still a go.
9 is better, meet at Safeway?
It would be great to get confirmation on when we're meeting. I'm assuming 10am since we haven't heard from everyone whether 9 would work. 612 [masked]
You guys want to meet at Safeway a little before 9???
Won't be able to make it after all.
Still starting at 10:00 am? Might be crowded by then.
What time are you guys thinking to be done by?Has anybody seen the flows up close to check if they're fat enough to place screws and lead?
If it is horribly windy in the canyon i'll probably bail but definitely up for giving it a try.
I have tools, let me know if I should bring a rope. On another note, the wind is going to be pretty intense most places this side of CO. Should we be concerned?
Hi folks! I haven't purchased ice tools yet, would like to try a few before I buy. Will this be a top rope climb?

Hey - also a new ice climber here. Only been a couple times (and also have very little rock experience). Looking to climb on a top rope/belay - is this trip for me?
Yes you should join us... We will have a top rope

I just found out that I got squeezed into an avi level 1 course this weekend, so won't be able to make it climbing this time. Definitely lookin forward to it though!
My husband and I have climbed ice before. We'll bring a rope and a set of ice axes.
So, are we all meeting up around Little Eiger? If so, what time? I think that by 10 o'clock things will be very packed there.
FYI: Clear Creek ice is VERY popular; especially, with groups. Suggest you start as early as you can to minimize the chaos. Have fun!
Has anyone been up the canyon to see which flows are in?
The ones by Little Eiger are in. I looked at them this weekend. I'll be up there Saturday climbing
I'm going to be in Chicago, as it turns out. Have fun, though!
