That usually works though isn't foolproof; one time I had a 6-pack freeze up pretty bad despite being buried in a snowbank.
I would wager a guess that you did not have "highly alcoholic" beer in that 6-pak.
I think that makes a difference. Coors Light is certainly going to freeze easier.
As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM
