I would guess it depends on the year and the conditions at the time. If Mazola Party is in, it does offer fun, exciting, well protected corner climbing on ice.

Kind of skinny but not mixed in modern context.

ps. that's how we found it. Climb it in any version, you won't be disappointed.

I have been totally diggin' this latest flurry of posts of "this crew" at play and having way too much fun. You guys rock! And Ice , too! I'm waist deep in life right now and all the cool pics and banter are a welcome relief. And I actually know most of these clowns, too! I am going to have to come up with a name for this sub-species, or has that already been done? Sure, I might be getting a little beer-eyed about now, but Big Mike and the crew, rock!

Not sure. What do you call a climber who refuses to stop climbing despite the conditions? ;)

Weenies. That is the term u are looking for that is generally thrown around.


Sometimes on the dust in the back window of my car it says "bolt clipping poofta" or something of the like, but maybe that's more specifically just for me :-)

It's getting serious Mike, but the cops have a photo of the suspect taken from some surveillance. Unfortunately it's from the back (I copied it from the crime stoppers website & posted below). They suspect by his hairstyle that his prime was somewhere between 1984-87 & he may be lashing out due to the furious pace of technology leaving him behind, they can't prove it but the criminal psychologist also suspects that he likely owns a pair of Lycra pants and wears them in secret with a bad boys club tank top & a rack of quickdraws while dancing & listening to flock of seagulls on something called a "tape"???


Call crime stoppers if u see this rat tail!!!

I was thinking, maybe "the Light Brigade". Not light as in lightweight, but rather light as illumination. Actually, the more I think about it, lightweight works. All except Big Mike, of course.

edit- rat tail? it looks a sparrow tail.

Light brigade eh? Hmm you're right, most of these boys are a lot lighter than me! ;)
Weight wise that is.

Hey Ryan! I know that kid! I think he lives just down the block from ya!! ;)

All I'm saying is ice climbing can be seductively easy, but in the end the only thing seperating you from disaster are a few millimeters of steel, especially when you are soloing.

Ha ha. I think Tami knows a thing or two about the potential for disaster when soloing ice. The ride she almost took was over 2,000 feet, not just 200, and there just ain't no way the trees at the bottom were going to help her survive that one.

I've told the story here before, but for those of you that missed it, it's here.

Damn. That again :-) . Glad to be around to tell the tale tho' David tells it better.

Is my life only to serve as a warning to others?

Giggle.
