Climbing Mag/Snow Update

First things first, I'm VERY happy to see the new article in climbing mag about Devil's Lake. Jay did a phenomenal job with it and I'm so happy that him, Remo and Rhoads all got pictures published. Remo has the most impressive spread at a full page in full bad ass mode. Nic was even jealous.

It's nice to see people who've had such an effect on the lake get their due. As for the bouldering, there was never any reason to include it in the article as it didn't fit with the theme. I'm actually glad Jay left it out. It would have been too small of a mention and it only would have taken away from the already incredible article.

Thanks again Jay. Good work.

Second, Aaron needs to give some sort of snow update for us. Apparently him and Ben went up there on Sunday and shoveled some stuff off only to find ice everywhere. Once he finally got the ice off water purged off of the top in a river. Sounded hilarious to me.

Aaron, update please in the comments and I'll re-post it here. How much snow was up there? How long do you think it will take to melt out? When will shit be climbable???

Do it.

That is all.


  1. I was at DL about 10 days ago, and there was at least 2 feet of snow on everything. Will take a while to completely melt, unless there is a good downpour of rain.

    Yeah Aaron let's hear it.

    I agree about the article. Great writing, great photos. Nice attention. Also also kind of neat little interview with Eric Z. And yeah, Remo looks badass. Here's to spring. ce

  2. Well ill report on the climbing conditions after this weekend. John and I are heading up to the lake on Saturday.
