Off to Valdez

Tomorrow I'll be heading out to Valdez for the Ice Pixies Festival. An all woman ice climbing festival with climbing in Keystone Canyon, backcountry skiing, Yoga, live music and beer. From what I hear we will get to top rope some Grade V climbs. Sweet! I missed it last year because I was on the ski train. It will be interesting to meet more woman ice climbers from around the state and learn from them. Also, I have never been to Valdez!

Be back Sunday!

Nice! I've wanted to go there sice reading Jon Krakauer's Valdez Ice (an essay in Eiger Dreams).

Just found your blog, and I love it! I want to move to Anchorage in August, but I need to secure a job first. Keepin' my fingers crossed!

I will be back to visit here - love the pics and the adventures!
