Spring is on it's Way! - Andrew Plagens

 
Spring is on it's Way! - Andrew Plagens

The weather has been absolutely awesome this past week on the Front Range. It was time to forget all other responsibility and focus on only climbing. The week kicked off with some ice climbing in RMNP with my friend Bruno and his sister. It was here second day in Colorado and her first ever day ice climbing. She kept near pace with Bruno and I on the hike up. Quite impressive! On Sunday I rested and went to work. Monday I was back at it again; I went skiing with my dad. We got a ton of turns in and the spring skiing weather was definitely in full effect. On Tuesday Bruno and I went up to Happy Hour Crag in Boulder Canyon and got a couple of afternoon pitches in. The next day we went up the canyon again, this time to Castle Rock. We climbed there all day. By the time Thursday rolled around I was pretty tired. I'm on break all this week so hopefully I will get even more climbing done, and maybe even a day or two of skiing.
