After a long day of boating it was time to go crevassing at the top of the ramp. There is a hole the size of a person that you abseil into at the bottom – 40 feet or so down there is a ice tunnel system. We were wearing hardhats, mountaineering boots, carrying our ice axes and wearing crampons. The light shone through the snow creating blue light and the icicles (ice sculptures) were stunning. There were a few places to crawl through and the crampon techniques we learnt were very useful.

  1. Hey, you look like you’re having way too much fun. They’re not paying you to do this, are they?

    Your parents are here at the house now, how do I get rid of them?
