Location: Finally stopping that crazy suffering that is ice, climbing to concentrate on great ski tours!, .
Interest: Anything that can drag me to the mountains. Backpacking is #1, followed by climbing, dayhiking and camping with family.
Neoprene paddling socks have saved me from serious pain a few times when crossing glacier fed creeks that are ridiculously cold. I put them on, put on my sandals (better traction) and can endure a pretty lengthy crossing. Flip them inside out to dry. In the winter, they'll freeze, and then you just bang the ice off them and they're bone dry.
