Ice Climbing: Yodel

I actually looked up some information on yodeling for this comic. I didn’t want to write out his yodeling and have it be spelt wrong or yodeling some non-yodel-type verse. But after researching, I don’t believe there is a wrong way to yodel, and apparently there are quite a few people into it that take the art very seriously, on my nature hikes I don’t believe I’ve run into any of these enthusiasts that are out there… but I have given a healthy try at some echoing off canyon walls. I read somewhere a good description of yodeling, it’s a loud singing hollar that you bring to the point of your voice breaking. It had some how-to’s starting with opening your front door and giving a good practice yodel out it, that’s where they lost me…
