If it's possible to have a single favorite ice climb on planet earth then Aims Ice Hose is it for me. Aims is a three pitch climb that can be mixed on pitch one and as hard as WI6 or as friendly as WI4 on the ice pitches. I recall the first time I did this route vividly. It was January 7th 2012 the night before I had dinner with Jack Roberts and Joe Josephson in Ouray. Joe told me I'd never even find the climb, Jack grabbed a bar napkin and drew me a map. Oddly he signed and dated it, little did I know a week later Jack would be gone. I love Aims because it so aesthetic, three pitches, each offering a different challenge and each one more enjoyable then the next. I also love Aims because it represents Jack's belief in me. Pitch three is other worldly it's 66 meters of the best ice I've ever climbed. Back in Ouray someone asked me to describe the climb and I said "..it's like doing blow off the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders tits." But all joking aside it's a great climb and if you're even near Telluride grab your tools and go get it. If you need a map I've got one. Thanks Jack where ever you are.
