Christmas came, again

Not only did we get a delightful Christmas present from Kelly and Jason when we FINALLY went to retrieve our mail, but Bryan got to do a little ice climbing yesterday, which was part of his Christmas present from me.

I don’t have the gear for it, so I was on belay duty. The ice was no good, so we used it as a reconnaissance mission and have a good idea of where to go now for next time. We’ve got to chat up the climbing club here to figure out when the ice gets good here. It must be too early, or too snowy or something because the ice just crumbled away, making it unsafe to climb.

Bry was doing a little bouldering around checking things out and he put his axe in, only to hear the water pouring underneath. Nope.
