I'll take back everything I said! Great job,
and you most certainly earned my respect.
You don't look at this as being a job, do you?
Ohhhhh, I forgive you for a year of abuse:-) All the very best in the New Year Larry!!
WEEE, there is my girl! Great Picture!
All the best from your other abuser!!
Ha! Didn't take you long to pipe in! I wish you all the best too...and let Adams be the first of many!
... a great job, indeed.
But take care not to drop ice over the head of the climber behind you.
Ahhh, no worries, that's what helmets are for.
the girl who can smile climbing ice in a blizzard.
What more can I say!
Happy climbing, and may all the best adventures come your way.
Thanks Marc! But what there is no smiling picture of is a few moments before this, I tried to make it through a little waterfall (that would be unfrozen), slipped, only to look up and see my ice axe stuck in the ice 6 feet above with my glove still in it. Oh, and there was freezing water trickling down my face. At that moment, my sense of homor was nowhere to be found!
And, moments after ALL THAT you were smiling again!
Gee, when you put it like that it does sound a bit crazy! Maybe I should have myself checked out:-)
Your comment indicates the right mountaineering mind, congrats….
Thanks Lubos, it's easy to be happy in the mountains!
I'd love to see an Iceland Trip Report.....
Thanks! Yes, I really should get around to that report...but just the word report reminds me too much of work! By the way, your Cirque of the Unclimbables is just fantastic!
... when it's wild like that, there's no place I'd rather be.
Ha! And by your profile pic, looks like you're all set to go!
Indeed. Iceland is a place I must visit. Though up North in Scotland they had the coldest winter on record (since 1914). And more Siberian weather on its way. This winter already a lot perished in avalanche.
Actually, this pic reminds me of one published in a book. I'll try to post it.
