Ice Climbing Trad

Ice climbing gear photographed for my still life/commercial photography class, appropriate for the cold weather setting in. Two stories to accompany: 1- ice slips a lot when on Plexiglas.  2- once upon a time I was sitting in the emergency room and there was a boy sitting across from me.  He was missing most of his nose.  A sheet of ice while ice climbing came off and took off his nose.  I was holding my finger together and he was sitting casually without a nose.  I will never ice climb.
