After a month of sport climbing in Mexico and not touching steep ice for more than a year, this made for a nice warm-up for a couple of months in Canmore. Took the left line (WI4). There was a bail thread low on the pitch. Conditions were good but windy. Lots of weird wind-blown features on the start and kind of thinky for the grade.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
