ACC Ice Review 2006
January 7-8, 2006

ACC Ice Review trip, Ghost Valley, 2006.

Day I: Went for Weather Heights, however another party was on the route. We saved the day by continuing to walk up the valley, doing the "Peanut Gallery" instead which was a ton of fun. Nice ending of the day with a campfire, very tasty warm chili and a keg of beer.

Day II: "Valley of the Sun", a really scenic climb with a number of short steps of climbing and walking in-between.
