I have returned safely from my extended weekend journey to Sandstone Minnesota to photograph, camp, and climb at the Sandstone Ice Festival. I am glad to announce that even with multiple days of being outside and temperatures eventually dropping to -11º on Saturday night, I have successfully kept all of my fingers and toes intact. I'd like to start off by thanking the festival organizers and sponsors for helping put on such a great event! I am continually impressed by the climbing communities ability to bring people together who share in a common excitement for the great outdoors while continuing the longevity of the sport and its participants. I will be processing photos quickly and soon uploading images to my website as well as doing blog post/trip report about the four days on the road. Please check back often for photos and stories and feel free to share this link with friends and other climbers from across the globe or across the gym... as always I love to hear your feedback.
