“Thanks Bert, for another great Ice Bash. Although the temps were a bit chilly the sunshine was sweet, and the evening events at the Brewski were a blast. I took a headcount during Matt McCormick’s slideshow and counted 85 people! Also, a big thanks to all who supported CRAG-VT‘s acquisition and stewardship efforts during the Ice Bash raffle, as well as the generous sponsors who provided the gear for the raffle (and demo gear). Can’t wait for next year’s Ice Bash!” – shredr24
Hard, Bold Climbing in the Notch
Slinging icicles for gear Alden Pellett persevered up a possible new route (Scotch & Water,WI5X, 300′) to right of Cloak and Dagger during the Alpinist Magazine sponsored 4th Annual Smuggs Ice Bash. It was 10 below that morning but Alden and Jeremy found some fun in the sun and “fed the rat”.

Matt McCormick slideshow “Northern Revival” at the Brewski Saturday was a look at the next generation of Northeast climbs and climbers. I was truly inspired. Matt is on the leading edge of new bold climbing here in the Northeast. You can see the the sideshow next in the Catskills, Saturday, February 20, 2010 at Rock & Snow during the Catskills Ice Fest – Doug
Thanks Burt for your hard work and thanks to the sponsors and everyone who helped make this event happen. I look forward to next years Bash!
