February 2-6, 2001
Ouray, Colorado

Ouray, CO, has some of the best ice climbing at its Ice Park. When Chicks with Picks, an ice climbing company, held its second annual climbing clinic that aimed at “women climbing with women, for women,” in February 2-6, 2001. Heidi decided to participate. The clinic, which was designed to teach self-reliance through the development of skills in a safe, non-competitive environment, had world-class climbers come to work as guides.

Heidi wanted to learn from accomplished world-class climbers, including infamous alpinist Kitty Calhoun, Kathy Cosley (the only American woman to be a fully certified international AMGA guide), Jen Stewart (a two-time winner of the Ouray Ice Festival and an X Games ice climbing competitor), world-class ice climber Kim Csizmazia, and Himalayan alpinist Angela Hawse. Heidi felt Ice Park would be an incredible location to learn from some of the best in the world, in addition to networking with other adventurers who could support her efforts in reaching the seven summits of the world. Heidi greatly benefited from Chicks with Picks, learning new techniques and improving her existing skills. For more information about this clinic, visit www.chickswithpicks.net.
