Could the weekend in Keene Valley have been any nicer? 20-25 degrees with bright sunshine? Ok ok, the top of Chouinard's on Friday morning was a bit... nippy

I am obviously a superior ice climber due to the need to only swing once for a solid stick

You needed ice tools? I followed the second pitch of RBF with no ice tools.

You needed crampons? I lost my right one 2/3 the way up.

True, somehow I managed to encounter 'full' conditions at the last section myself... Or is that snow coming from the direction of the camera?

I don't think LTL could disagree:

Lets not forget miles of post holing in waist deep snow to bring us the beer support.

yeah yeah yeah...ya'll had a good time in the Adirondacks while I worked. You suck. But guess who got to lead 100' of phat, virgin, grade 4 ice on Monday in the Catskills?? Of course LTL and Dillbag would have rated it 2+ or 3-, but that's only because their muscles are bigger than their brains.
