Re: Great

Agreed, it also beats eating all day.. ok maybe eating can't be beat, but once in a while a change is good. :-)

I was not with you two this day...makes the sun hitting my back in my office, that much sweeter. (heading out to Bluff Street with Joe A this afternoon). Glad to see you and Jason hooking up again. Sounds like you might have got him wound up for my next visit. Cheers.

Re: glad...

Ha ha, thanks Dow - I had another -30 day of climbing last week too, this year seems terrible for ice. Conditions are bad in most places too - be glad you didn't fly up in December.

Re: I must know ..

Canadian Tire - hockey tape. People use it to line their hockey sticks :) Jason had it last year, and I loved it so much he gave me his roll as a gift, and I put some on too.

Renfrew hockey tape

Cloth tape - works even better when rub in the the sticky "Snap Wax" which helps keep it from getting wet or icy and provides more grip.
Great pictures on your site and good TR.

Re: Renfrew hockey tape

Thank you for the advice and good word, Bill! Will have to try that out. Hope you have a nice winter in Calgary, I miss it there once in a while. Great pics of the Rockies you have!

Fun read.

Thanks for posting. Sounds tough with frozen/numb hands. I think this route was filmed in "Higher Ground" that came out a few years back. I've watched that segment of the movie about 30 times. I'm still a newbie at ice climbing, so these posts are very inspiring! Awesome stuff!

Re: Fun read.

Yup, I saw Higher Ground too - it's the same climb. Ines Papert & Audrey Gariepy are the ones climbing it :)
