Ice Climbing Vs Rock Climbing

Will Gadd has a lot to say about the differences between ice and rock climbing – especially the ice climbing shown in a video he has on his site. Here’s one comment about falling while lead ice climbing I was surprised to read:

In 30 years of ice climbing I've caught exactly one lead fall (Guy Lacelle of all people), and never fallen on lead. Most of the people I climb with are the same; a few fell off once or maybe twice early in their careers before figuring out it was a really bad idea…”
