winter scene for my profile

This photo was taken in December 09 in the Sandia Mountains, New Mexico. There was a little frozen waterfall in my backyard, so I had to go and try it out...So much fun!

Hey Liba,

This is a great shot, but I'm trying to figure out what you are doing with your right tool. It looks like you're hooking your left shoulder with it. Or, may be you're scratching your back with it. In either case You look very happy to be out playing.

Re: Hey Liba,

Hi, I was practicing switching hands without dropping anything... I was so excited to find out about this waterfall in the Sandias... I guess it could be used as a back scratcher. I will try that...

Way to go...

Ice climbing in New Mexico....No way...way to get out there and get it done. Must have been a blast for sure.

Re: Way to go...

Thanks... the best part is that it is 5 min drive from my house.

Umm... I think your supposed to hook the ice, not your shoulder. LOL. Looks like fun.

Re: Great Shot

maybe... I think as long as you don't drop your ice tools it is all right... haha... perhaps I should get leashes to climb with ...

no to leashes

This is a cool shot. Btw, you technique of switching tools looks right to me (at least that's how I do it!)

Re: no to leashes

Thanks, it was my first time ice climbing on that photo, and the ice tools were not even mine. I guess for a short one pitch climb no leashes, but a long route.... I would use leashes.
