Not sure if it helped or not... but its great fun anyway!

I've always thought of doing that but never got round to it, do axes and poons hold well on hay/straw?

Its very weird - they hold really well! It's similar to real ice climbing, so makes for good practice when the weather's warm.

I thought I was the only person who'd ever tried this. I concur..great fun but you need to climb the bales on hte short edges....I had a "moment" when climbing a bale on a long edge and it started to topple over towards me...luckily I managed to take my weight off before it toppled too far...would have been crushed !! I was also picking bits of sraw out of clothes for weeks afterwards.
