A little Ice Fest throwback on this rainy morning.  Fear not, winter is on its way, 15 inches of snow reported on Mount Washington overnight!  Nick Yardley sent along this blast from the past, check out the speaker line up back in 1996!

Who would you like to see at Ice Fest this year?

Has everyone seen the new edition of Yankee Rock & Ice?  The publication was originally put out in 1993 by Laura and Guy Waterman.  This year Laura enlisted Michael Wejchert to update the climbing history to bring it up to present day.  Its a great read and the update will get you in the mood for winter shenanigans.  Lots of Ice Fest friends, past and present!  Copies are available at IME and White Birch Books in North Conway!!

Two day clinics are filling up fast! Each of these clinics are run Friday-Saturday and Saturday-Sunday, and are a great opportunity to get skills dialed Ice Fest weekend. Call the IMCS - International Mountain Climbing School office to sign up! (603)356-7064

LEARN TO LEAD: Leading is very rewarding but can also be dangerous and scary if you are not prepared technically, physically and mentally. The course covers advanced anchor & belay systems, racking of gear, rope management, and route finding while on a multi-pitch climb. Day two will deal with placing screws from awkward stances, using alternate protection systems, and focusing on protecting the climb, not the move. We will cover advanced anchor & belay systems, single and double rope management, descending options and route finding while on multi-pitch climbs. Sponsored by Outdoor Research.

GLACIER TRAVEL AND CREVASSE RESCUE: This two-day intensive course will cover the skills of knots, friction hitches, roped travel techniques, self arrest, snow and ice anchors and extrication techniques. This practical “nuts and bolts” course will focus on developing the skills you will need to safely move over glaciers and around crevasses.

The The American Alpine Club Vision is a simple one.  A United Community Of Competent Climbers And Healthy Climbing Landscapes.  A simple vision in a complicated landscape.  We're stoked to have AAC back for another MWV Ice Fest!  Stop by their table to talk about all the rad things going on in their organization!
