Justin, Nick, and I ventured up I-70 to do some ice climbing in Vail, Colorado, at the Pumphouse Falls.  We each got several laps in over the course of the morning and then stopped at the Outer Range Brewery for a couple pints on the way home.  The ice was good with lots of climbing options.  This was only Justin's second time climbing, but he did great working on technique and foot work.
