I just remembered a surreal lunch, sitting on the ice of Avalanche Lake about 30 years ago. Having been out for a few very windy days and hitting below -35F at least two of the nights, we were greated on the way out through Marcy Dam with a cold but near windless day. Lunch was consumed in t-shirts even though my little thermometer still read -10F, but we were quite warm with not a cloud to be seen. The pressure cracks were really popping in the ice and a huge one went right under me. The first and only time I could feel the ice crack like that despite many years out on frozen lakes. Felt like a completely different place compared to other visits there. Sorry for the ramble, but a photo sure can bring back memories.

Nice shot of Tommy at Baker...that multi-ton block he's hanging onto is cammed in by about 1" of surface. Pretty amazing feature.

Did you guys actually climb on the Banana Belt (in your second photo)?

So Jim, did the words "Death Block" get replaced by "Pretty amazing feature"? \:\/

Yikes! Hard to believe that no one has trundled that block yet. Looks like a gust of wind would send it.
