Climber's bling

Around my neck I have four pickets/slings/biners and four ice screws. Three of the pickets are still on the mountain after we decided that leaving gear behind and rapelling three of the four Pearly Gates pitches was preferable to painstakingly downclimbing and increasing our risk of being taken out by ice pitched off the mountain.
