Haha i guess i need something to do with my ice being i have not had a cocktail in many many moons...

I get it thought still it feels like being a big kid to me. I had a friend say last season that ice climbing reminds him of being a little kid playing in his snow suit at the end of the driveway. I think he nailed it at least he did for me.

More like a little kid playing in a snowsuit in the middle of a busy road.

All this talk of The Cleft has me thinking about climbing it on Saturday.... Think this most recent snowfall will have any adverse effects? insight anyone?

The “adverse” effect is it is mainly a snow climb now with 2 short bulges of ice... I enjoy it more when it is pure ice... still well worth doing though... geologically it is a really impressive “Cleft”....
