      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

The weight of the sum'tec is one of the enhancing features about it.

 

The gully is not really designed for anything other than being on your pack in case you need it; if you need it, you'd be happier with the sum'tec; if the terrain is challenging enough that sum'tec's weight is too much you'd wish you had a real tool (and definitely not the gully).

 

Ice axes and tools are one of those things where the skimping of weight is counter productive. I actually looked for the heaviest axe I could find when purchasing my most recent one.

 

You definitely don't want to be in a position, pull you axe out, and realize your ultralight toy is no match for the snow, snice, neve, or ice in front of you ...
