Well a week of very warm temperatures with not a lot of depth to the ice has pretty much taken it all down, with the exception of climbs up high. Some may come back or it could be an early rock season.

It was my 40th anniversary as a  professional climbing guide in early March. I've never regretted it a day, I will always love to climb. As the saying goes, any climbing is better than no climbing. So I'm still here, offering all levels of technical climbing instruction year-round. I never appreciated my parents naming me Joe until I registered my website, climbwithjoe.com. All of my courses are custom designed for your needs. And still I say if you looking for quality and experience I'm your guide.  If you're looking for a deal or to check off climbing from your to do list I'm probably not. I'm here for those who have seen a mountain or cliff or a ribbon of ice either in person or in a photograph and thought I wonder what it's like to be up there. So if that's in your DNA get in touch. The mountains await.
