/ Ice climbing in Colorado
I'm planning to be in Denver in February and I'd like to do a few days of ice climbing. I've done some stuff in Scotland before but I would like to build my experience.
Could you recommend any climbing schools in Denver or further out that run good ice climbing courses?
I've stayed in Ouray for the ice climbing, not sure about classes, but its very accessable stuff,most can be top roped if you want (we appeard to be the only ones leading and only a few minutes from the nearest b+b type hotel (we stayed at the Victoria Inn - 10 mins from the ice). However - its a long drive from Denver.
Vail may be a bit closer but full of stockbrokers on skis doing deals on their mobiles.

"I'm told by Nat who passes RC Corner every day on his way to work. No Ice to speak of as yet. To much sun during the day time.
Has anyone had a look at Craig y Llyn yet, that will be the first place to come into nic? Anyone able to drive over that way on the way to work this wk, please check it out from the car and let us know. I have a day off on Friday and will be keen to check it out if anyone's off wk. I have to be back in Cardiff by 2ish so only a quick look."
