PARK COUNTY • “Whooaa,” Jim Barry remarks, as one of his Boy Scouts slips nearly 50 feet up a frozen waterfall.
The teenager is secured, harnessed. The fellow Scout belaying digs his feet into the ground and quickly stops the fall.

The climber resumes his ascent. And the afternoon of fun continues
