In the spirit of [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxtg7raPDYo], I am pleased to offer you [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Or9IQOtt4ho&feature=related].

What knowledge may we gleam from this wondrous source? I for one have discovered that you can "spot" a free soloing ice climber, while multipitch climbing no less.

Sweet game though.

Old news. There are also BD C4 cams and Quicksilver draws on the main character's harness during the ice climbing segment.

That was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. They were cruising up the super steep ice.

Wait - didn't I drop one of my tools after trying to stab the leader in the back? So how come I have two at the end?

And, is the rope he's carrying hawser laid?

I was impressed they bothered rendering the leashes. Especially after the tool drops and the leash is just blowing in the wind, somehow failing to do its job. Bad leash, BAD!

They are wearing leashes, but they don't render until he drops his tool. Proud send though.

That may be true, but the climber has amazing technique. I am going to have to try getting my picks to go all the way in to the hilt and sliding down 20 feet of ice before catching myself. Sounds like a thrill.

Brittle ice.

What was the season like in Massachusetts?

Since I didn't do ice, I'll have to let others (crazy fools) answer that.

(But someone gave me 5 stars on my earlier reply to you Smile)

"See you on the far side."

I think I'll start using that instead of "On belay."

Their crampons must have been super wicked. They didn't even need to kick, just place the inside edge of your food on the ice, and bingo, it's a bomber foot placement!
