Last week Montana finally got some nice weather and we took advantage of it. Ice season had come to an end so Jeff and I headed to Kootenai for a day of sport climbing in the sun. Temps were great and the feeling of sunshine on bare skin was long overdue. Shortly after Jeff and I got a warm-up lap in, friends started showing up. The first buttress was crowded with more climbers than I have ever seen up there at one time. It was great seeing so many people pushing their limits and getting after it. The motivation was high and everyone was shouting words of encouragement to one another. This is going to be a good season.
