South Park pillar

A pretty thin at its base - we were afraid to swing our tools, so I was just hooking it in. A fun little pillar - most of the South Park is pretty easy ice, this one offered some excitement.

...pretty thin at its base...

Were you referring to the ice or uh... I mean... what were we talking about again?

Very nice shot regardless Liba. Good to see some ice up on the front page.

THanks Mr. Chad. You should have heard how dull it sounded when I tried to swing my tool into it. I was happy to be on towrope and safe.
Thanks again.

I'll have to assume dull sounding is bad. I've never been ice climbing. The climbers were out in full force a week ago in Yosemite, but I stuck to skating at the time. Something for the to-do list.

I always admired ice climbers scaling frozen waterfalls in Washington state.

Their tools were out of this world !!!

Re: Nice

good luck with your monitor :) perhaps, reconsider swinging into something else.
Thanks for visiting.
