Blue lake Ice Climbing, August 2002

August, 2002. Cold weather. Great ice. Great snow. Alex tried climbing in volleys, crampons, shorts and an old wodden handled ice axe. It worked!
And we built a huge snow cave. It had two rooms and could have slept four. Richard even built us a card table from two carved blocks of snow, and there was a built-in to hold the wine cask. Below is the view from the back of the cave. The entrance is behind Richard Wood(left). Alex Debono is on the right, Andrew Mitchell hidden behind Richard.
