Ogre II, Charakusa Valley, Pakistan. The trio of Will Mayo, Josh Wharton and Stanislav Vrba will also attempt the North Face of Ogre II, where they’ll find difficult and sustained mixed climbing and a lack of bivy options to the summit ridge.
The tools look great! I can’t wait to try a pair. I am told the tools should be available for Demo at the MOUNT WASHINGTON VALLEY ICE FEST.

Time to sharpen your gear! The Winter and Mixed climbing season is here!
Great early season tips from Cathedral Mountain Guides
It’s that time of season again. When the Fall weather turns wet, cold and miserable and we all start to think about swinging our ice tools into some deep blue ice while the silence of winter surrounds us.
So with winter on the mind and crampons strapped to our feet, we’re getting things started for Smuggs Ice Bash 2015.
We’re striving for a bigger and better Ice Bash this year. With more clinic offerings, more gear demo’s, bigger raffles, amazing speakers and much, much more!
This year, Mountainfest is offering more clinics than ever, including tons of ice climbing courses, snow and alpine climbing, snowshoe mountaineering, avalanche safety, and wilderness first aid. Many of the event sponsors will be here with the latest gear for you to take and climb with on both Saturday and Sunday.
