Ice climbing Driving Force (WI 3), Smugglers Notch, Vermont

Elvira and I are currently celebrating Christmas and New Years in Stowe, Vermont, where we ski, snowshoe and ice climb :-) Yesterday we hiked up towards Smugglers Notch to ice climb. Smugglers is known as one of the best ice climbing areas in New England and we were not disappointed as we got do climb one of the classic moderates Driving Force (WI 3). Also I got to test the new equipment I got for Christmas: Prodigy gloves, Sabretooth Pro crampons and Blizzard harness from Black Diamond along with my latest purchase, Kayland 8000 boots, for my coming expedition to Alaska. It was all great and luckily the gloves and boots were way to warm for the excellent weather we enjoyed! Have a look at a picture slideshow from the day here.
