Topic - Ice Climbing

BnB - on 22 Oct 2013
Popped into my local ice climbing wall (well, er, iced lift shaft) on Deansgate (Manchester) today. At the outset, I confess to having been a little intimidated. It's been a while. After a few warm-ups, however, my pal and I were daring eachother to confront the overhang, attempting to tiptoe nimbly up the pillars, and giggling through a one-axed ascent of a WI4, which really got us working on footwork.

By the end of an action-packed hour I had remembered not to knock seven bells out of the ice with the picks and felt the footwork coming together nicely.

Now all I'm thinking is this: I bloody love ice climbing. Winter is coming is it? Bring it on.
