Yep, well done on getting the two under these conditions, pretty hard going. Enjoyed the video, good stuff for your first try, an excellent record of your day and something to show the grandchildren :D As already been mentioned, that ice axe position? looks a bit risky to me. At least your getting out there :clap:
