Ibex are Dam Good Climbers

See all the little specks on the Cingino dam in the Italian Alps? They're Alpine Ibex and they're not scared of a little 160-ft hike straight up. Especially if it means they get to lap up a little salt along the way, which is believed to be the reason they are attracted to this nearly sheer drop. I've known some porkers in my day who loved some salt, but dam. 

Perhaps "like an Ibex on a dam" will become a phrase conveying confidence in a tough situation, particularly one where salt is involved. Be on the lookout for your next opportunity to use it!
