During our winter trip planning we decided to put off a New England trip until Carly’s birthday so that we could celebrate with family and also get the extra vacation day of President’s day. Coincidentally, February just happens to be in the thick of ice climbing season just about anywhere and so it was in New England.

Friday evening I got a call that Angel of Fear was in. This is one of the rarer forming climbs in Utah and is the jewel of the “Holy Trinity” in Santaquin. I’ve never seen it even close to forming before. The previous time I’d seen it sort of form it had fallen down to the road.

I crammed just about the farthest ends of the climbing spectrum into one weekend, and they were only about 50 miles apart on the map. I’ll say almost, because I’d say alpine climbing is at one end and bouldering is the other. I only went ice climbing, which is close to alpine climbing.

Got out this morning for a quick lap on Argenta with Charlie. Snow was pretty good overall, a bit dense in spots from wind and a little sun effected on west aspects nearer the bottom, but fun nonetheless. This was my first time skiing Argenta and it is a quick objective from the sense you get right into the business from the car—no wasting time on flat ground. Unfortunately, the skinner is in typical Wasatch shape going nearly straight up in many spots, particularly on the first third or so.
