That's chilly
« on: January 30, 2014, 05:07:28 PM »

...but I guess a dunk in ice water is not so bad, all things considered

and what's up with people planting tools a few inches apart? That would freak me out roped.

It's hard for me to wrap my mind around settling for all those wobbly sticks on a lead...never mind a solo.

Worst part of the whole video (which was pretty bad from start to finish) was the well intentioned advice at the very end (donít ever solo itís too dangerous)...

Speaking of GoPros I often inform my avalanche courses that you are 38% more likely to get caught in an avalanche while wearing a GoPro  :P

That mustve been a cold walk back to the car.  I am sure plenty of "warm up" drinks were consumed afterwards.

...damn was he sketchy on every tool placement! The best part - gotta love the "thumbs up" at the end! And the "do not solo it's dangerous" at the end!

nothing wrong with soloing. it's just wearing the go pro gaurentees your gonna wreck :o

If i told you once I gotta tell ya a hundred times.. If you see a go pro ice climbing simply dial 911 and get the rescue started cause you know the wreck is comming ;D
