To many of us, ice climbing is church.
We come here to pray and get on our knees.
Our fate: The Screaming Barfies
|If your not wailing out loud and dry heaving, it's not the 'screaming barfies'.|
This man is getting the full value experience.
When your friend gets the 'screaming barfies' for the first time, the proper thing to do is humour him by laughing, pointing, and having a little boy come over to untie his knot.
By definition, the screaming barfies are when your hands warm up from frozen little icicles, to red hot pumping blood at 98.6º, so fast that the burning sensation drops you to your knees, and you start wailing and dry heaving at the same time. (As pictured above).
Now I hear a lot of people throwing around the term 'screaming barfies', which makes me happy because it means that ice climbing is finally out of the closet and we don't have to be shy and bashful anymore about the sport that we love more than anything else in the world that requires our most basic primal instincts. BUT,,, if your not screaming and barfing, you haven't experience the screaming barfies.
Can you see the ice climber in this photo?

Why do people love ice climbing so much?
Maybe because it's cold,
and absolutely beautiful!
