Fortune Favors the Bold

So one of my friends throws a quite fun birthday party for themselves every year up in Thunder Bay. Last year I ended up missing this party because of another trip and so, this year, I went out of my way to find out details first. As usual, the party lived up to its reputation and so you won't see any pictures here.

That said, as luck would have it, the Thunder Bay section of the Alpine Club of Canada happened to arrange an end-of-year ice lead clinic that just happened to fit in perfectly with my schedule (if you include ice climbing on 3 hours of sleep under perfectly...). Ton of fun with beautiful ice that had been accumulating all season on a nice (if cloudy and windy) day. Big thanks to the trip leaders for organizing a great event!
