This shot is really great. I like how you can see the climber and the belay.
Thank you! It was a beautiful day. Have you done any ice climbing?
Not really, unless you count this ice step that was in our way on Mount Rainier.
Looks fun! Was it?
I should be leading ice in a couple months, if you're interested I'll let you know.
Did Josh call about rock climbing this weekend? I was hoping to head out to Index, and he said you would be interested. I can lead, I have a rack and a rope, and it would be great to go climbing- I don't get out very often. The only thing I need is a car.
Yes, it was a good time. I'm not sure that I'm ready for things like frozen waterfalls but I would be interested in trying some rock with the two of you. This weekend won't work but possible some time in the near future. I can drive.
Okay then, sometime in the future. Please let me know.
Mark, you sure are making big strides. Work out the moves good, the placements and the balance. The routes, think of the getouts. Watch the weather. Great stuff!
Thanks! It's really exciting coming from virtually no background in technical climbing at the beginning of this year to where I am now. I think I am headed on the right path.
