Brrrrrr... Good on you for climbing in January but I can think of nothing more miserable. Guess that's why I don't ice climb either, though at least for that you can wear gloves.

you silly wankers can't handle it!

But ya, I didn't climb that day either. Belayed and took pictures. I froze my ass off setting up the TR.

Nice to see others are as crazy as I am! I was out at balanced rock wall on Wednesday afternoon but it was sunny and 32. The rock was warm although wet from melting snow. The worst part was the approach and the set up. But I do enjoy the peacefulness of climbing in winter!
