The Most Orgasmic Ice Pillar Ever

Me trying to onsight 'The Fang'. It was in perfect conditions but I just got scared higher up and was not mentally ready. This climb is intimidating!!! My third ice season will make sure to include a redpoint of this amazing line! Photo courtesy of Scott Borger.

Re: That is so amazing ...

I never think my next move could be the last, that is the wrong mindset to have while climbing ice. I just try to feel positive, evaluate the ice, feel it through the picks and boots, and try to enjoy the moment. God do I love this pillar!

After looking at your pics, I'm amazed. I didn't start climbing until I was 35 (2 years ago). I love Ice, just now giving rock a go. Climbing ice is like the best drug, and it is addictive.
