welle, we are far from experts, just weekenders with desk jobs... all it takes is some mileage to get comfortable with the medium... I'm sure you are much closer to this comfort level than you think!! Hell I'm lucky if I get out ice climbing 5 times a year these days, living so far away from it.
Charles, thanks, you should get one, with some of the sweet stuff you & your partners have done on such high levels, it would be a treat to get a helmet cam angle on your climbs.
And ya, that was funny running into you attimount, I didn't even manage to get your name? I think Dow and I ran into travelin_light at the hut in the Bugaboos several years ago, the climbing community isn't that big
