Happy Holidays!

Stay sharp...and stay alive this Winter!

Happy Holidays from my family to yours!


Doing the 2nd ascent, in a day, of Slipstream was a life changing event for me.  Sadly we didn't take a camera.  Finding Chris' photos last night has allowed me to relive that experience in a small way from the comfort of my computer desk :)

The new cover photo on Cold Thistle shows a team topping out on Snow Dome after climbing Slipstream.

Some truly amazing photos.  Thanks Chris for sharing them.

A few more but not all from Chris' face book page.

Gary Silver and I used a half dozen old Chouinard tube screws, one Warthog, one 9mm x 150' rope    and these ice tools to climb Slipstream in early Jan. '81.
