Is that first pic photoshopped? If not, that's got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.

Under/un-developed sense of humour? Unimpressed

I guess one could miss the "Ready, set, GO!" above the pic.

Finally, indoor ice climbing!


Actual conditions without camera flash


room without a view. If you aver happen to sleep inside a glacier: Its not that cold, normally, but the floor is cold! should have taken two matresses


Easy climbing, fantastic scenery

Damn, i miss that cold island Unsure

I like climbing in a Burqua because it adds to the challenge. Wink

Actually, the hood and part of the shoulders of that jacket are made of darker fabric than the body. My head looks like a giant watermelon because the hood is over my helmet.

Yes, that's a Wild Country Syncro Harness. Holds all the Ice Clippers you could ever want, plus one.

Somebody from Canmore just claimed the first ice of the season yesterday. I guess it's 'Game On' in the Canadian Rockies if you like the spicey thin.

It was WI not AI that this guy climbed, and it wasn't WI that formed on Andromeda Strain up in the Icefields... this was early season Kananaskis Ice. Apparently it was "Thin but fun. Up to 20cms in spots where the wind had blown it around."

That's because Grant has Friday's off. I'm hunting tomorrow. Rack is already together, and rope is coiled. All I need to do is put it all in the bag and make a thermos full of Coffee for the drive tomorrow morning.

I give it a 75% chance of success for ice. But my rack probably looks more Scottish than ice... I'm always realistic about early season.

Well, 2 partners canceling and my truck has a short somewhere which drains the battery... looks like no ice hunting for me today.Unsure

Now I looked at my past notes and temperature patterns, and I know where there is a 98% chance of some early season ice where it hasn't been posted about. But I know better than borrowing the wife's car and risking getting back to pick her up from work late. I've done that before.... it wasn't pretty, quite terrifying in fact.

So, back to the coffee this morning.

Is that first pic photoshopped? If not, that's got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.

did you even notice how easy the ice was that they were climbing? if someone falls there, it's pretty much their own fault for sucking.


btw- shades of beauty and the fluffy's routes are totally climbable.

Pics I saw weren't spice thin. Not sure if they were the chossies but would think so.

Ya, things are exploding in the Rockies. Day time highs around -5C and overnight lows in the -18C range up high. Add to that a lot of ground water this year.
