In case anyone hasn't seen this, which I was surprised a few of my buddies hadn't... This is seriously badass. Just watch the whole thing...
Thanks for sharing Rockbanned. That was the coolest-dumbest-most-badass-assinine-climbing I've ever seen! I was amazed how their tools and 'poons thunked like as if on real ice. Shitty scary momma I'm gunna die ice, but ice! Great video
Chalk climbing: never the same route twice. Heck, not even the same route for the follower as the leader. Yep.
My first "winter" routes were all on chalk, not far from where the video was shot. My mother would go mad at the state of the my clothes afterwards. Not sure she understood what we were up to really, or maybe parents were more relaxed 35 years ago.
