The cold world of alpine climbing.

Pray you can be so lucky!

I have come very close to serious injury or more likely death three times ice climbing.  Twice in one season @ the same place on the easy snow decent of a grade 2 ice climb.  The other on the easier ice approach slopes of a grade 3 a decade later.

The lessons have not easily been forgotten.  Thank goodness.   Most serious car accidents happen within a couple of miles of  home.  It is the easy stuff that will likely bite you if my experience is any example.

Y'all be careful out there!

Merry Christmas!
