For a second consecutive year, the First Ascent team—including guides Erik Leidecker, Zach Crist and Chad Peele—will be a sponsor at Ouray Ice Festival at Ouray, CO, Jan. 6-9, 2011. The festival is an international gathering of ice climbers, gear manufacturing exhibitors, and ice climbing fans simply thrilled to watch at a safe distance from the precipitous edges. All proceeds from the festival go directly to the operation and maintenance of the park.
The event kicks off on “Local’s Night”—Thursday, Jan. 6, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Main Street Theater (630 Main St.)—with presentations by Chad Peele and others. The $15 admission includes New Belgium beer and a seat in at the historic theater. Following the presentations, First Ascent will be hosting a welcome party starting at 9 p.m. at Ouray Brewery featuring live Bluegrass music with Kort McCumber and free appetizers and drinks.
Over the course of the weekend, the First Ascent guide team will offer several clinics (see below), attend festivities, and of course hang out at the First Ascent Airstream on site. See you there!
