Ice Climbing --- 2/22/2015 --- Salmon River Falls

A trip of frozen ropes. Belaying with frozen ropes. Ascending frozen ropes. Coiling frozen ropes. Hauling frozen ropes. Lovely.

The Stiff Upper Lip award goes to... Pukey! For taking this trip in the middle of a particularly nasty three day GI bug.

The Straight Face award goes to... Sammy! For telling the joke about Little Johnny getting lost at the zoo and coming home with a penguin, and pretending the whole thing was a true story.

The You Said What To Whom? award goes to... Adam! For asking Jim Lawyer if he had ever climbed in the Adirondacks.

The Driving And Muffins award goes to... Gretchen! For driving. And bringing muffins.
