Sapphire Bullets is definitely in my personal Top 5 of ice climbs in the San Juan’s. Every pitch is excellent. The climbing is engaging, but not desperate. Super classic. Not to be missed, if you get the chance.
We have our second Waterfall Ice Workshop offering for this winter coming up in 3 weeks time. Currently, there are two remaining spots. If you want to hone your ice climbing skills and learn about both companion rescue and team-based rescue in the ice climbing environment, come pay us a visit for a week of quality education and training.
