Colorado Ice Climbing Conditions Feb 07 2009: All Mixed Up, Rocky Mountain National Park

Is there a trail to All Mixed Up? Well, I put one in on Saturday. It was alot of work, but somewhat of a good mental exercise. Hope to never do it again, as I was up to waist deep snow for a bit of it. All mixed up is a bit bony, and very sporty. If you are looking for a walk up ice climb you will be very unhappy when you arrive at the base, if you are looking for a slabby run out mixed climb with a fair amount of good frozen turf then you will be happy. Bring lots of rock gear and stubby screws. Have at it and have fun! The park is still wintry and very beautiful.
