planning and scheming
Had a little ice and snow practice today. Going around with crampons and an ice pick. How to walk in a rope and what to do when someone in the rope falls. Also self-rescue when falling. Also using a jumar. Too bad the ascents were short and not very steep, but it was a beginning. And it will be handy when I’m on the glaciers.
More about ice. Will Gadd is climbing or has already finished the fund rising event of climbing ice for 24 hours straight trying to reach the height of Mount Everest. More on his website – http://www.endlessascent.org
