With such a killer snowpack this year, its hard to give up a free day to do something other than skiing.  However, there are other activities that are good cross training for ski mountaineering objectives, so we justified going ice climbing for a day in the Boulders.  Plus climbing in the mountains is always fun.  Drew and I climbed mostly moderate ice, with some steeper variations.  Marc and Drew had been up to this spot earlier in the season, but had climbed a different pillar, so a few options existed.  Here’s a couple photos.
