The weather continues to be PERFECT here in Ouray. Day time temps are warm but the night time temps are dropping into the low 20′s. This has allowed the Farming Team to continue to make excellent ice. The river has been rising during late afternoon hours. Please remain aware of water levels in the area you are climbing. Access to the bottom of the gorge is still great. The next few weeks should offer some of the best climbing conditions of the season.
We have a few routes closed on the North End that see excessive UV exposure. The Stump Wall closed today for the season due to direct UV exposure. Please respect closed areas. There is plenty of other terrain to climb that is in great condition.
