If you didn't cross the line at FreezeFest IX, you weren't there...

Maybe it was because of the crazy weather and lack of canyons in condition, but things just plain got ugly for this year's version of the fest. For two days, there was rain, as temps stayed just above freezing. The last 4, it cleared up, but was as cold as anyone can seem to remember.

But, a tradition is only a tradition when it's kept, so a crew of 13 fools set off to descend the black hole on New Year's day. Temperatures at the parking lot were 16, only climbing to 23 by the afternoon. Definitely the coldest in the 9 year history of the New Year's Black Hole.

Good times!
