Ever changing ice

Part of what I love about ice climbing is how much the ice changes every time you get out. Here was Ripple on Sunday in "thin" conditions.

And Ripple last year mid season...

And Ripple the first year I climbed. This was in April I think. It was late season and it was huge.

I totally agree, I think the same thing every year...its part of what makes doing the same route again really fun!

I had always thought about the changing snow conditions as the season progresses, never spared a thought about the ice. D'oh!
