Wednesday, and climbed it this morning at 8am. The photo only shows the top 2/3 of the climb. It is 60 feet tall.

Nice. Solid enough to trust screws? Won't be after tomorrow.

We climbed several flows in the rebel camp drainage today. Definitely a good year for the desperate ice climber in Ky. Where was this at?

Screws... Maybe... It was like WI 2+. Kind of full of air pockets.

It is in Kentucky, maybe be private land... So don't want to give location.

It will be gone tomorrow. But cool while it was in.

Nice! The biggest Kentucky ice that I've seen photos of was from the winter of '78-'79, or thereabouts, when Pearsall lead a big column on the Kentucky River Palisades. Of course, nothing ever lasts for long around there. :(

Same ice as OP, but Friday morning. I am sure it is gone now...

Clifton, are all those pics from this year? Looks like you got after it. Nice!

Would anyone want to show a dirtbag like me to some sick ice like this? I just got back from the Michigan Icefest and I am itching to sink my tools into some ice again. I will reward you with beer and fudge from the Slade shell station. With the precipitation we've got in the forecast and the cold temps on the way, I imagine something has got to be in on Sunday or so.

Super ! We used to climb thin smears of ice here in IL at Starved Rock State Park back in the 80's,,but they closed off all those canyons with seeps,,afraid our tools would permanently damage the soft sandstone beneath it. Had some epic routes, leads on the shortest screws available back then, and tied off, no 'screamers' available in 80's. Wish we had more natural ice in our area instead of 'farming' ice as we do now on the side of old concrete farm silos.
