Description

After climbing at East Vail Falls on Friday, Jeff and I returned to Vail, Colorado, on Sunday to climb at the Pumphouse Falls before the Broncos game.  It was pretty cold, and the ice seemed particularly brittle.  We each led the pitch once and then just top-roped several more times before heading home.  I wasn't feeling particularly strong and was happy just to get some mileage in on top-rope.
