Description

After a night of a few drinks and some poker, we had a couple of hours of climbing to do before heading back to Denver, Colorado.  I was definitely over-served and wasn't sure I could belay let alone climb.  We decided to lower in just below the lower bridge to end the trip with a bang.  I dropped in first cleaning as many icicles off the pillar as I could on my descent and climb since the water ran Monday night.  We then each took a turn and also set up a rope to the north of the main climb we were on.  After everyone got their run in, we called it a day and began the long drive back to the Front Range.  It was another fun and successful trip to Ouray, Colorado.
