Is that not how you climb?? Hahah

"Invaded" is a little strong though. India has a strong mountaineering history with, you know, the Himalayas.

However I doubt they have been mountaineering in jeans with a backwards harness?

Looks like a pretty normal warmup to me. Why would anyone even bother filming something like that? I assuming this was done as a joke.

climbing friend,

I do not climb the ice rocks, because I do not hate myself and want to die.

But if I am perhaps curious to try squeezing the ice, this is quite good way to learn lead ice yes? Plenty of thrusting up?

Best Tyrolean traverse ever but can you really trust a guide who doesn't own crampon?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
