Ditto here, same great winters here,,,the biggest ice and snow seasons here in Midwest were from about 77' to '86,,thus we got the officials to recognize the opportunity to open up Starved Rock to ice climbing in 1980. Sure miss those days of Big Winters and huge ice.

I've started a Kentucky Ice Climbing FB page to help folks keep up with our fickle ice climbing season. It's very short, but also very sweet. I have beta on some stuff outside of the Red, as well as some good non-waterfall routes in the Red.

That is all.

Cool Heath. Feel free to use my photos on this topic for your Facebook page. It looks like you all are getting a good cold snap, so maybe the ice will show up.
