I had two awesome couples this past weekend for two days of intro to ice. They were ironically coming from opposite entry paths to ice climbing, one couple was rather experienced in mountaineering, and the other couple rock climbing. It seems to be a trend for me this winter that I have groups from the southern states. These couples were from Texas and Virginia. In the past month or so I’ve had another group from Virginia and one from South Carolina. I’m starting to think I might have to keep my 1861 springfield handy incase any of the Johnny Reb’s get sentimental about the war of Northern Aggression while they’re up!
