Great..

picture. Interesting how your picks are sunk in so far. Are they in melt holes or something?

Re: Great..

I think it might just be the angle of the camera - you really don't want those black diamond picks in very far; they're very hard to get out.

That is a

so cool, and intense.
Great photo,
How is the shoulder holding up? It was the shoulder right? or am I off base here?
In any case you seem to be back at it and cranking hard.

Re: That is a

Yep, left shoulder. The picture above was taken on March 22nd, so shoulder is doing pretty good all things considered. You can see that I'm not hanging on left arm to set the screw in (which requires less energy), which is a bit of a relic of the surgery - I just figure better training. Thanks for asking!! AJ

Re: That is a

I understand. Your lock off power should improve though.

I have a bad right shoulder. So, I have put a sling on my chin-up bar to reduce the extension on the joint. I used to reach 3 inches further with my right, now I reach 3 inches further with my left. Being short already, this has cramped my climbing a lot. Marc

Wow!

Now this is what I call a sweet climbing shot! Great avatar.
I was wondering the same thing about the Grivels too until I read the above comments.
This is a great shot!
It really shows the effectiveness of two front teeth! :o)

Re: Wow!

The Grivel ice screws are the best screws in my opinion. We've tried them all. They go in super fast, can fit in very narrow slots, and are nice and sharp. The only down side is that they don't rack as nice as BD screws, but it's a small price to pay. Cheers!

Re: Yup!

I have those crampons for about 5 years - I've liked them, and they've been used hard.
