comment How can I tell if a natural snow-bridge is safe to cross?
Sorry I was not clear but what I mean is that lower temperature drastically decreases the power of ice to withstand your weight. For ice formation, well it depends on many factors (the weather, the river shape). Natural bridges can be created naturally but it is rare on larger river. Last but not least, if you are not able to differentiate between the different layers, it means that you are dealing with only frozen ice. I suspect that the stick you are talking about is used to detect either the ice depth, the snow depth or how firm the snow is.

comment Sweating in sleeping bag
I would also recommend trying other sleeping bags (your current sleeping bag might or might not have the appropriate temperature).
