joys of ice climbing
This pic. was taken at the top of snivelling gully. Me and my inexperienced partner initially planned on doing the left weeping wall until I got sick. We got in this after I recuperated. The route went without incident until the last pitch. I new from experience that the ice was bad, but my partner wanted to press on. Despite his lack of experience, he had more guts than me. Unfortunately, he did not know to avoid hooking while placing a screw. He ended taking about a 45 footer onto an old v-thread. Miracously it held. After finishing the pitch on pure adrenaline he belayed me up and I got the only injury of the whole incident when I dislodged a basketball piece of ice.
