Roberta \"Bird\" Lew was an early favorite among the enthusiastic crowds cheering her on. Bird, a 1998 Silver Medalist climbed up the treacherous 60 foot ice structure nearly to the top but slipped out at the last moment before reaching her goal. Bird finished seventh among the twelve world ranked women ice climbers. She remained a crowd pleaser however and flashed a big smile after her ascent from the ice wall.
