comment What’s the difference between a B and a T ice axe?
All the T rated ones in the climbing shop here are heavier, chunkier and generally more solid than the B's, but that's not a huge sample, I guess.

comment What’s the difference between a B and a T ice axe?
Technical seems to encompass very hard ice climbing (not entirely sure as I'm more of a rock guy too)

comment Can you keep your feet warm in ski boots on a very cold day?
Never thought of this- the only times my feet get too cold are when my boots are too tight, or if they get wet (which is always a danger in Scottish snow)

comment How can I start a fire by rubbing two sticks together?
I taught my two eldest kids to do it, first just using hands,then a bow. It is hard work, and I'd expect them to always have a flint, but it is good to know you can do it in an emergency.
