Out on the Ice

December 2, 2009 -- Sal Silvester

I went ice climbing this past Sunday in Rocky Mountain National Park for the first time this season. And, as I was watching the video I made (see below), it occured to me that the key components of finding a good ice climbing partner are the same components of being on an effective team.

  1. Climbing partners have to share the same goals.
  2. There has to be an unyielding level of trust.
  3. You have to be able to speak up when you see something you don't like or are about to do something you are not comfortable with.
