I just watched a video of the ice fest in ouray. What's with the man made tower?

I haven't climbed and real ice in a decade. Is ice climbing so easy these days that it takes man made obsticals to make it hard?

It's just a fun circus. Bring some hootch, some vino, and little bit of cowbell.

If I remember correctly, just a few years back, a natural awfulwidth shut most down when Wharton cruised right up it all. I bet Langston coulda romped up it too, that year.

After somewhat following the world cup thats going, the course is korea looked to be all plywood and plastic, also.

But maybe world cup has always been that way.

Exactly. Those folks push it year round for real. It's a festival, for fun.
