Private Lead Ice Climbing Lesson - Day 1
Learned how to read ice!
Practiced placing pro with both my left and right hands
I also did some mock leading, and my climbing technique
was honed as both a follower and as a lead climber.
At our lunch break, we got a little visitor. He isn't at all shy! He was trying to get into Alexa's backpack. He has probably been hand-fed.
At the end of the day I got some cool stuffs - couple
CMG posters, a cute pink beanie cap and a camp knife.
Put both posters in a frame and hung it up in my gear room/office.
