Bruce:

The whipper Traverse was pretty sketch- manky pins right off the belay. My partner was solid though. It was the first ascent of the season so the ice was bulletproof and not hooked so quite devine.

Mugs Stump told me that I had to get a Curver, so I did (it was really short, 54 cm)

wow, I could get out some of that pre-gortex stuff, including a "60/40" parka that my wife made for me back in the day... probably from a pattern out of an old book on making your own camping stuff...

wool socks, wool knickers, wool balaclava, wool mittens, leather boots, nylon shell... got wet and stayed "warm" (the mantra, repeated over and over: "wool is warm, even when wet" was more a prayer)

wood handles, no leashes,
impossible technique

climbing ice in January 2012 was very different from the last time I climbed ice in 1995

the clothing technology made climbing movement possible and kept the body warm and dry
the ice "tool" technology transformed ascents from something akin to framing a house to actual recognizable climbing

and the popularity of the sport has turned it into a search for holes to hook (this is not such a great development IMHO)

no use dwelling on the past except to, once again, give kudos to those climbers who put up the hardest routes (many still hard) with the gear of that day

Kris E and I drove up after the 2004 election, totally bummed, ready to become Canadians. The Terminator headwall was super deluxe, nice and plastic before deep winter sublimates it into a brittle nightmare.
