At the "summit"
Looks like you folks have two TR anchors. Is that correct? Also, from the pictures, it looks like the routes would go at somewhere from 3+ to 4+? I'm wondering if your nice ice would be suitable to take a group potentially consisting of some first-timers to.

Thanks to Dirk , Dave and friends and all who came out to climb ice today. A bit windy, but the ice held up for many ascents. See what the 50 temps coming up Mon-Tues will do to the remainder of the formation.
Paige's first day on ice.

How did your ice hold up today? I climb a lot at the silo in Cedar Falls IA and it looked like a shower.

Is Cedar Falls still open? Their website has not been updated last I saw. Our ice is gone, gone, gone. This is the 3rd total meltdown this season so far.

Yeah its still open. Hasn't been a good year, only a couple weekends. Pretty sure it is without ice now as well.

Just curious... do you ever stick your tool through the silo? Isn't that bad for the silo? Probably the dumbest question ever asked...

No, the ice is fairly thick but if we hit the concrete silo it will dull the tool a bit
