Description

This was my first time climbing in Vail, Colorado, this ice season.  It was also the first time I climbed with Nick in almost a year.  We went to the climb early in order to get back and watch the Super Bowl.  We initially planned on going to East Vail Falls, but as we approached the climb we noticed another party ahead of us.  As a result, we hiked over to Firehouse Falls and each got several leads in on both sides of the flows.
