Peter, you are simply having too much fun ! :)
That wasn't the most comfortable stance of the day though :) There was no ledge with good ice where to set an abalakov on the upper section, so I was forced into stopping at a near vertical section... wasn't too bad though, winter clothing pads the harness quite well :) How are things with you? I'm glad to see you so active on SP recently!
I'm doing ok - hiking, hitting the gym, and even went snowshoeing on New Year's Day. Got another car. We'll see what my neurosurgeon says about cycling in about 7 weeks ..
