Omega!

Franconia Notch NH

What happens when you get  a ton of rain over a snowpack, and than a cold front moves through…Omega in April…that’s what!  Here again it proves that you have to anticipate and be ready for unique ice climbing conditions. Peter Doucette has been following the conditions all winter and taking advantage of the unique conditions as they happen. Peter and Adam were ready and got a 3:45 am start for this adventure. Perfect!  What great  ice climbing. Just look at the photos…great bonded ice, and the lighting could not be any better. Fantastic late season ice climbing. Remember…It’s not “OVA” till it’s “OVA”.

Marathon ice climbing in the Adirondacks!

I wish I was climbing Ice this well at 9 years old. Way to go Eli

Marathon ice climbing in the Adirondacks!

Eli Minich, only 9 years old had a marathon ice climbing outing in the Adirondacks. Eli and his dad Jerod took advantage of this extended ice season and found some great climbing on some of the Adirondack classics. Eli climbed, Chouinard’s Gully, Crystal Ice Tower, Hot Shots, Ice Slots and Roaring Brook Falls.  It won’t be long before Eli is leading his dad up these classic ice climbs. I bet Eli is already dreaming of next winter. Better keep an eye on your gear Jerod.
