On January 25th–27th, 2008 the First Annual Niobrara Ice Jam will kick off at the Niobrara River Ranch, a working ranch and hospitality operation about 20 miles East of Valentine, Nebraska. Accomodations will be provided by the Niobrara River Ranch. They have fine custom log homes for rent by the night. Visit their website at www.niobrarariverranch.com
There are approximately 40 routes on the main face of the cliff and another 40 practice climbs in the warm-up zone near the "warming" hut by the Niobrara. Coordination of the event is being handled by Yucca Dune where you'll get additional lodging and event information. Call 888-996-9292 or 402-376-3330.
