Ice Fest Guest Guide, Bayard Russell.

Outdoor Research athlete Bayard Russell is another top notch Ice Fest guest guide and we are honored to have him apart of the weekend.  Bayard is a guide throughout the year in northern New Hampshire and specializes in guiding ice climbing, mountaineering and rock climbing in the White Mountains.  On a personal climbing level he also is constantly putting up new routes all over New England and is known to be an incredible mixed climber.  He was the winner of the 2010 MWV Ice Fest Face Off Comp last year!  Most recently he put up a new line over in the Adirondacks with Matt McCormick (Ice Fest guide) and Matt Horner.  Check it out HERE!

Bayard will be teaching two mixed climbing clinics and a steep ice climbing clinic on Sunday.  Check it out below!  Don’t miss this chance to take a clinic with one of the best all around climbers and guides in New England!  Learn to dangle and hang upside down or how to conquer some steep ice- you know you wanna! And the Patriots are NOT playing on Sunday (Feb. 6th)- so there are no excuses now!
