awesome all round.

TEs so enthusiastic. i wonder if hes payed by the superlative?
In reply to ice.solo: He's adopting the American climbers' tick of putting super- in front of everything. Super-cool, super-hard, super-psyched. It's one of those annoying things that once you've first spotted it, you can't help notice it everywhere. And its fine once in while but listening to some American climbers and super is every fourth word. It's like about 6 years ago when the BBC seemed to stop talking about soldiers and only discuss "boots on the ground". Argggghhhhhhh.

But the ice climbing is super-cool. I wish I could climb that smoothly and confidently! The ice does seem very user-friendly though, lots of first time placements.

Although folks I know who have climbed with Tim say he completely lives up to his rep for being a bouncing ball of fun and 'psyche' who tends to pull others up with him by the shear energy of his enthusiasm!

looking at the climbing he's done I wish I had just 1% of the climbing skills he has.
His ratio of strikes to good sticks is incredible, 9/10 good first time. must be the axes he's using.
