Good morning folks!  There’s a chill in the air and single digits in the forecast – it’s coming!

And if the thought of that early ice, that scrappy and thin climbing gets you psyched, well then this should too – Ian Osteyee and CAMP are returning again to the MVW Ice Fest!

Ian is known among the Ice Fest circles as a guru of thin ice, somehow always being able to levitate his way up those climbs that are just barely “in”.  He has been teaching our Climbing on Thin Ice clinic for years, and it’s increase in popularity is a true testament to the fun that participants consistently have out at climbing with Ian.

Ian Osteyee, CAMP athlete and owner of Adirondack Mountain Guides, styles it on some wicked thin New York ice.

Not only will CAMP be sending Ian to guide, they will of course be arriving with heaps of demo  gear for Ice Fest participants to try out.  CAMP is well known for the innovative, lightweight climbing gear that they began designing 125 years ago in the mountains of Northern Italy.  Be sure to grab some demo gear from them before heading out to try your hand at climbing thin ice, or any other of the Ice Fest clinics!

And stay tuned for more news coming from CAMP this season!

Welcome back, Ian & CAMP!
