This is a fantastic, inspirational video! It just makes me itch for good ice conditions.
I also love the backing track! I am curious as to what song and group it is and would be hugely grateful to find out,
Nice vid. The bugger makes it look so easy. Ice Nine is IV WI6 by the way and Slaughter House (M8+) goes up the rock behind the pillar.
That's great! Cheers for that,
