I never tried ice and always thought it crazy after viewing a Nova special about a guy who broke his leg on Kilamangaro, but this shot makes the attraction apparent. Facinating!

Re: Headless

Thanks Rob. Yeah wierd shot. We had a third partner with us this day and he climbed a hill and took this shot of the first pitch. The ice was quite chossy, thus the headless effect. Falling on ice will many times result in an ankle or leg injury, different mindset than rock to be sure. Much more tangible when compared to hard rock though=more fun for me. Cheers Rob.

A nice change in view...

Another great photo. It really gives some perspective to how steep that line is. Great work. Was that your lead?

Re: A nice change in view...

Thanks for your comments GC...this was my first trip into Waterton for ice, short approaches for such steep, that is Jayson climbing and actually another friend (Blair) taking the photo. Cheers.
