Twin Towers, Uschinen

An eastern european thin hooking (he's probably falling off!)

Some other Uschinen shots

Two photos of Kristoffer during his spurless ascent of Pink Panther

You wont find a top out like that in hueco.........it's a great buzz climbing steep bottomless ice and safer than a highball too!!

Austria - Switzerland jan 07

Not much of this about in the alps this season

Paul on the start of White Magic (near Mayrhofn) modelling this years colours

Bez demonstrating some of the routes excellent moves but the Sika wasn't helping to hold the large flake up any more!!!

Top AND bottom rope!!!!

Drylands was anything but dry, it was mega steep, long and slightly loose.
The photo shows my high point - just off the ground........next time

Ochsengarten - An excellent little drytooling crag west of Innsbruck.
Steve using (or removing) some verglas on the tricky bulge.

Dan throwing his shapes at an appropriate location.

Si keeping the pro neat and tidy (the axes are near their max steepness capability though)

some of the ice that was found turned out to be thin and featured with tricky pro. Dave and Jez making the most of it

Pink Panther

Taking a breather before setting out

Taking to the ice which was nicely hooked following Kristoffers laps.

Thanks to everyone for the photos
