I hate ice climbing.
Jim Merlie and I hit up SS today and it was top notch. Exempt that I fell thru the ice, Jim almost broke his leg, everything was covered in snow, and we couldn't warm up. No one got hurt and we each got to spend another day at the 30.
Most of that is a long story and I do not want to get into it. It was epic but amazing at the same time. Jim said it best as we trudged thru the snow "this is the closest I want to get to mountain climbing".
Here is a video of today. It sums up my feelings.
