Today was Fantastic! I love to climb easy ice in beautiful canyons when it is in the mid twenties. It was just what I was looking for in my second day out this year. I felt like half the retard I did my first time out, so I'm looking forward to the next time when I could potentially remember how to climb! By the way if you were looking at my helmet, this is a one of a kind Raina Panarease Special. I love it!
