Thoughts? Anyone been on it in the last few days/week?

How 'bout no gloves?  John Harlin would be skiing (and probably training for epic ice) without gloves.

Maybe jumaring up some skinny ropes too.....

Millermits......

I would rather a couple of Sierra's than a sixer of PBR any day.. I would sometimes have a 'Gannsett with the Manchester crew, but that was not the same.

"cold and wet"  = ice climbing

Kinkos are to ice climbing what PBR is to drinking beer. looks way cooler than it tastes ::)

Maybe,,if you look  good..you climb good

A couple of thoughts:

1) Does anybody actually think one "can look good" while ice climbing?? Seriously??
In my many decades, I've only ever seen only a few climbers who really "look good" while ice climbing.  The rest of us just "hammer and bash."

2) Kinkos are soooo yesterday, all the "cool kids" are into Wells-Lamont (they have nylon backs, and are cheaper also…)

3) If you're choosing between PBR and Sierra Pale Ale: You can buy a six'er of PBR tallboys and three lottery tickets (and have a few coins left over in change) for the cost of one six-pack of the cheapest chi-chi "craft beer…"

Yes, I know there are real "connoisseurs" of beer, and they can appreciate subtle differences. But what exactly is up with a brew-ha-ha that's made with "blueberries, expresso and oatmeal (and a hint of 'citrus')"??  Personally, I've always thought the highest praise of any beer was "It's cold and it's wet, and get me another one, while you're up.."

 I thought the 4 finish to Pegasus was much steeper this year. Wasn't too bad but was happy to follow.

For climbing I use:
BD enforcer for when it is around 0*
BD Punisher for 0-20ish
BD Arc above 20 - these are my fav's!!!
BD Mercury mitt for belays

For skiing:
BD Squad glove below 20*
BD Spark mitt above 20*

Yup, I like BD gloves. They fit my hands well and seem to hold up decently.

dude, you have too much disposable income. The guv'mint can fix that.

Dude, you're broke as shit. The government can fix that. They'll just take $$$ from the one who has six pairs of gloves.

You can get used to PBR but is really not as good as Siera Pale Ale 8)
