It is usually very hard to get people up by nine a.m. on a Sunday, especially after a wild party. To my surprise, though, I had to turn people away from our 4th Annual AAC Sunburn Breakfast, part of the 2010 Ouray Ice Festival. This year, we were pleased to host Ines Papert. Ines wowed the crowd with her pictures and stories about rock climbing and what motivates her to keep pushing her limits.

If there is ever a reason to get up early on a Sunday morning, it is the AAC Sunburn Breakfast that never disappoints.

The rest of the weekend was a hit as well, with AAC members Josh Wharton and Ines Papert taking home top spots and everyone having a generally great time. Says AAC volunteer Amy Villaci,

“It was my first time at this event which has been a fixture in the climbing community for the past 15 years. Checking out the latest gear from companies like Patagonia and The North Face, watching the pros compete, taking in Ines Papert’s slideshow at the American Alpine Club’s Sunday morning breakfast, or dressing up like a superhero and dancing the night away – it’s hard to choose my favorite part of the event. Even as someone who didn’t strap on a single crampon or tie into a single rope, the organization and friendly atmosphere of the festival made it a weekend well spent!”

Until next year.
