The three of us were going to go to Vail, Colorado, to ice climb but traffic was really bad by the time we got to Idaho Springs, Colorado, so we called an audible and simply went to Silverplume Falls to avoid ski traffic.  We each got a couple of leads in and called it a day when two more parties arrived.  We had lunch and a beer at Westbound and Down Brewing Company in Idaho Springs, Colorado, on the way home.
