Start Your 2020-21 Ice Season Sharp!
Like you, we're already looking forward to next year's ice season...
Prep yourself for success with sharp picks, crampons, and screws. One ASG climber recently contacted me about this option and I'd like to share it more widely. Ship your items to me in VT and I'll hand tune them, apply protective lubricant, sanitize, and ship them back to you. Maximal pricing is as follows:
—Ice Screw, Steel Tip Sharpening: $10/each
—Steel Crampons: $40/pair
—Ice Picks: $7/each
By “maximal pricing,” I mean that I will sharpen the items, return them to you, and then you only pay the maximal price if you feel maximal tuning was achieved. You will—I have two decades of experience sharpening a range of brands and styles. I will tune them to optimal performance, while not over-sharpening and diminishing long-range performance/durability. PM me on IG/FB and I can answer any specific questions you have and to arrange for shipping/payment.

“Winners take time to relish their work, knowing that scaling the mountain is what makes the view from the top so exhilarating”
- Denis Waitley . . .
For all those days you planned to start something new, make that day today. Then be able to look down at the mountain you’ve scaled proudly instead of looking up wondering what could have been.

It’s been a great season over all. Not much in quantity but in quality it was awesome ! Thanks to all my partners, belayslave or ropegun, for the good times, shared laugh and confidence. I would have loved to add a few more lines but in the present times there is greater challenges... Moreover , it’s been a year of reflecting on my inner self, overcoming my fears and going slowly one step at the time, in harmony with the elements
Thanks to all the ice climbing community and ne_ice_conditions for the constant updates! ✨🤙🏻

Une excellente saison en rétrospective! Pas nécessairement en quantité mais en qualité c'était génial! Merci à tous mes partenaires, belayslave ou ropegun, pour les bons moments partagés, les rires et votre confiance. J'aurais aimé ajouter quelques lignes de plus mais dans le contexte actuel il y a de plus grands défis ... Ce fut une saison de réflexion sur ma confiance personnelle, de surmonter mes peurs et de progresser lentement pas à pas, en harmonie avec les éléments. Merci à toute la communauté de l'escalade de glace et ne_ice_conditions pour les mises à jour constantes! 💫❄️☀️

Thoughtful Thursday#12: Doing Nothing Well: Finding Frogs—and Success—on the Summits.
An article with particular relevance now, far from the summits...
.
Below, you'll find the start of an article I wrote awhile back about the proper mindset for mountain climbing. In this period, when people are taking responsibility and self-isolating, it seems like it could have new and special significance.
.
Instagram has a 2200 character limit and the whole piece is 4300 characters, so just the intro appears below; if you'd like to read the full thing, go to the Adventure Spirit Rock+Ice+Alpine Experiences Facebook page. If you're not on FB, feel free to message me and I'll happily send it to you. And I welcome your thoughts and feedback.
.
If you'd like a bit more background about what this whole “Thoughtful Thursdays” post is, check out my September 5, 2020 Instagram/FB post. In the meantime, here goes!... Frogs are not typically associated jagged, snowy, glaciated summits. Nor are the squishy creatures seen as nearly as impressive a mascot as creatures with teeth and claws—tigers, wolves, and the like. Regardless, as our climbing season begins they should serve as the mountaineering mascot for any aspiring summiteer—and also as a useful guide in the lower elevations. Consider the frog, sitting on its lily pad: If there are no flies nearby, there is nothing to do but sit and breathe. Impatiently swimming circles around the lily pad would only scare flies off...and there is no use trying to chase down a fly if you are a frog. So nothing is done, save sitting and breathing and waiting. Yet, all that “nothing” is a powerful, purposeful something. It is preparation for the precise moment when the fly does arrive. Suddenly, our squishy friend becomes the picture of complete readiness, focus, and action: Frog-tongue-fly-mouth. Task dispatched, it's back to sitting, breathing, and being ready.
.
This is why the frog is the perfect—if improbable—mascot for climbers, the symbol for what we should aspire to be at elevation...
.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
To make our forecasts work better for you.

The Avalanche Research Program at Simon Fraser University, Avalanche Canada and several U.S. Avalanche Centers are conducting an online survey to examine how backcountry travelers use public avalanche safety information.

The goal is to better understand how you process hazard and terrain information provided in public avalanche forecasts. The results of this study will offer important insight for improving avalanche safety information products in Canada and the United States.

I am a Backcountry snowboarder but also a mobile developer. I would love to see a mobile app that sends out daily notifications of conditions. In turn users would also be able to submit their own reports. This information could be displayed to users to help display conditions and hopefully reduce avalanches and the need for rescue.

There are some good problems to solve in this survey. Like it.

Is it usually the transitioning from a Low pressure area to a High Pressure (or vice-versa) that causes wind?

Homeschooling with Jasper in PA, and he'd like to know what it's like living there for weeks at a time?

How mush snow is currently in the bowl, tuckerman's ravine?

What is the most snow you have ever had in inches?

how often does it snow?

what is it like working up there?

I love New Hampshire!! An amazing state

Thank you Ian - We appreciate all that you and your team are doing for us!

Hunter (from Maple Street School) would like to know "How long a period of time do most scientists stay at the Observatory doing their work?)

Hi Ian, Cooper from Maple Street School would like to know "How long did the longest snow fall go on for in the history of your data collection?"

Hi - I had a question about the availability of a product. What is the preferred method of communication at this point? Can we email with questions? Thanks.

It's a good time to shop local, if you can! IME - International Mountain Equipment is having their annual rental gear sale. They can ship to you, arrange curbside pick up, or hold it for you in store. (603) 356-7013
Be well. Stay Strong. #fightgravity

Repost from @mikaylatougas— thanks Mikayla!! Do you want the chance to help a small community business? With the COVID-19 pandemic, climbing gyms across the nation have been temporarily shut down.

@climbbutora is generously offering to give 20% of its sales to climbing gyms plus 10% to their athletes. Each code is uniquely created to help a specific gym and athlete (and it also gives users free shipping)! With any purchase of Butora climbing shoes- use my code C4G-mikayla-petracliffs to support the Burlington VT locally owned @petracliffs! The Petra Cliffs family has done a lot for me personally, and I'm hoping to return some of the kindness through this #climbers4gyms campaign!!

Please go prepare for the climbing season, show your support, and buy some amazing shoes!
