Wooden shoes?

Is iceclimbing on traditional Dutch wooden shoes possible? Being proud Dutch people we wanted to know if this old footwear was up for the task. So using the scientific method we conducted a few tests on the Buer glacier in Norway. Watch the video to see the results (substitles available). Not only will you see if it is possible. You might learn some other general things about the Dutch culture. Have fun watching and let me know what you think!
