Would you like it if I tickled your nipple with an icicle?

I enjoyed sulfurous springs last week.

THanks. To be fair, the hardest stuff was on toprope in the park. The multipitch leads went at WI3/3+, I'd guess.

I would venture Top Rope climbing is more difficult in general. Or at least it opens up pushing the envelope cuz you can bail easily, take fallz.

The TR allows you to train at the limit of your ability, but you can't count it unless you lead it. I'm hoping to lead a long WI4 this weekend. We'll see if I have the guts.

Nice solid hard ice feels easy to me. I almost always have three points of contact, which is rare in rock. But WI4, is prolly like chandelier ice and shit. Keep chopping it, it explodes, your holds all feel sketch, your knees start to woble, even at minus degrees you're sweating, after a while you run out of adrenaline then you're really fuq'd.

We got a vidya somewhere, of a guy climbing an icicle and it breaks. He goes down and the vidya ends. So I guess he died. Nice hard ice too.
