Events & Announcements / Patagonia Bringing Josh Wharton & Anne Gilbert Chase!
« Last post by MWV_IceFest on January 02, 2018, 06:54:47 PM »
Our friends at Patagonia are sending out athletes & guides Josh Wharton & Anne Gilbert Chase to the Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest! We caught up with them and asked them a few questions on why they dig coming back! Did you know Josh grew up in NH?

MWV Ice Fest: What do you dig about the MWV Ice Fest?
Josh Wharton: It’s a nice grass roots festival that doesn’t have a commercial feel. I enjoy seeing friends, and acquaintances I rarely see from my younger days in New England. Even though I’ve lived in Colorado for the majority of my life spending time in NH feels a little like coming home.

Found a screw on the Lower Hitchcock approach trail on Willard today. Guessing it went missing yesterday since there was nobody else up there today. Let me know what you lost and I'll make sure you get it back.
General Climbing / El Chalten Patagonia in February
« Last post by goodrockrich on December 31, 2017, 10:32:48 AM »
I'm in the process of planning my first trip to El Chalten Patagonia one year from this February.  I would love to add the mega classic Supercanaleta to my goal list but I'm not sure if it would be in this late in the summer.  Can any one offer experience on general Patagonia ice conditions in February?  Should I plan on solely climbing rock?  Unfortunately my partner works in the outdoor industry and can not get away until early Feb.  Any help would be huge!
