Cold nights are also clear nights.  And Saturday night was cold!  So cold that taking the above froze the wine in my cup. But no complaints, the weather for the second mountaineering weekend was near perfect. While the previous weekend had us learning how to use crampons and ice axes this weekend introduced us to ice climbing. I have to admit that climbing with that many sharp instruments was strangely scary. I normally don’t get much of a buzz from heights.  I will just have to say that it was ridiculous fun.
