There's a few sayings that go along with the sport of ice climbing:

1. Ice climbers: a few cubes short of a full tray
2. Ice is for pouring whiskey on.
3. There are those that can lead ice- then there's everybody else.

Ice is scary stuff! You're knocking deadly chunks of frozen water down on your belayer, swinging gnarly-sharp tools and kicking the wonderful medium all to hell with razor-like boot attachments (crampons).

It took me about a whole week in Ouray, Colorado to feel good enough to lead some of their amazing ice routes yonder. Here are some pics of the trip:

My high school buddy from Elko- Chanse! Small world.

WI4- I was stoked on this guy.
