"Last December I went ice climbing in Ouray, Colorado, with the San Juan Mountain Guides.  I enjoyed it so much that I would like to go ice climbing again.  Since I live in North Carolina the guides in Ouray recommended that if I wanted to go ice climbing in the Appalachians Mountains, I should contact Fox Mountain Guides" - Xavier Lacombe
