Ice Mountain - North Ridge Professional Review and Guide

"We made a couple of attempts before summiting Ice Mountain. On one early-season trip, we postholed all the way up the South Fork of Clear Creek (what, snowshoes? —a bad decision had us leaving them at the car).

Our original plan was to climb the fine snow couloir on Ice Mountain’s north face, but snow conditions were not stable enough by the time we arrived at the base of the couloir, so we elected to try the ridge instead. After almost falling through the heavily corniced north ridge a couple of times, we turned around."
