lol

One of my mentors always said to me," you need 3 things to be a good alpine ice climber".
A high tolerance for pain.
A bad memory.
I don’t remember the third….

Haha, I love that quote.

I have to say, it was quite the experience seeing a grown man reduced to the mental state of a upset child after following one pitch of grade three ice... I now choose partners with a little more care.

we only have some patchy ice on some of the summits in the higher peaks, nothing is in yet as we have had a really mellow fall/early winter here. Ian at Adirondack Mountain Guides keeps the conditions updated on a near daily basis over on NEICE for future questions.

I climbed rock in a t-shirt yesterday, and it looks like I'll be able to again this weekend, if that's any indication...
