I went ice climbing with coldfinger (the OP, if anyone can remember that far back). despite the shit we were flipping each other oh so long ago we got along great and had a blast climbing the dribbles and subsequently descending avalanche gulch in high/extreme avalanche danger.
The chest beating and douchebaggery of MP is silly and frivolous. Don't hesitate to get out with someone on here who may have been a internet foe.
Most of us climbers are pretty cool people (I'm self centered enough to think of myself as fitting into this category).
