Winter Training - Rap Wall and Big Four

With winter climbing trips to Banff fast approaching, we've been rather desperate to hone up our ice and mixed skills, which has led us to two often visited but rarely reported (it seems) locations: The Rap Wall, a drytooling area near Snoqualmie Pass, and the Big Four ice caves, which are basically the Baker seracs in miniature.
