Its really a great idea to use your axe in this way:-) Be careful... better you wont use the crampons too.

We kept the crampons on our feet that time, but I think my buddy was using an ice screw as a straw for the soup. ;-)

This pic makes me laugh. I've been in similar situations where I ate with sticks or had my dog drinking out of my helmet lined with a plastic bag. :-)

Did you see "Dumb and Dumber"? When Jeff Bridges stuck his tongue to the chairlift? I hope it was above freezing that day or you might of ended up in a real hum-dinger!

I think stirring the boiling soup & rice with the ice axe solved any temperature issues. ;-).

I've used my ice axe to open a packet of cured sausages, but that goes one better!

Thanks! I misplaced my spork on a more recent trip, and had to do it again. What ever works...
