The other page you put them on is the page that was SUPPOSED to be a thread only about the FB Ice Climbing Midwest page(so people know to go to the FB page a link to it, not silo stuff). You started posting silo stuff there awhile back. :)

Superb ice conditions yet, still short sleeve Hawaiian shirt weather,,,and wild overhangs to tackle. Be there tomorrow at 8AM to continue possibly some of our last ice of the season. Keep in touch via MP for any who may have an interest in coming down next weekend IF we have ice left.

Bump reminder,,,,probably last chance to climb good ice is tomorrow...10AM and on. Schedule a time with Juggler and I'll be over there to open up the place. Spring busy coming up, so we will probably not rebuild the ice as it melts off this week. It's still over 4 ft thick in most sections.....so get out on a cool Saturday if you need.

March 30th,, could have been our last day today, conditions are still great but everyone is getting busy with spring and no time to come get wet on last chunks of ice. It's still 4 ft thick or more in places, but drips alot. Fun time today in shirt sleeves once again. As much as I like wet sticky ice, I've got things to do in spring and probably will hang up the tools for the season after today.

Don't think even Peabody's Ice in MI has a brewery sponsor.... :)
We will check into it though...

How did you determine that the silo could support the ice ?

We didn't. We just tried it. It becomes self supporting the bigger the ice gets.

hi
"Secret ice" that's not very cool. We have limited resources in the Midwest and it's cool to share. I would tell anyone who would ask about any drip I know about anytime. Will you?

Hi Jon, we share with those who go on the trips with us. Also, this ice, I am sure, very below your experience level.. :) See FB "Ice Climbing Midwest" for a cover shot of one of them. Thanks!

  • *I sent you a PM to explain more about our situation with these Private locations... did you get it Jon??

hi
It has nothing to do with "my experience level" and all to do with the word secret in a community of climbers. I personally do not like keeping ice on the wraps and will call it out. That's all
