This was my first ice climb and I did it on lead, yikes! My buddy showed me how to place gear and I went for it. 🙂
I've been a programmer by trade, "software craftsman" that is. I also enjoy the outdoors and mountaineering and have been a weekend warrior for quite some time now, fifty plus years. Nothing exotic, some good stuff in the Northwest; originally the Montana Rockies and now the Washington Cascades. I've migrated my website over to WordPress for our children to manage at some point.
