    people are sending on Colfax. thanks facebook.
  7. So let's say a guy wants to use skis to approach climbs but climb in mountain boots not ski boots. Has anyone ever successfully retrofitted the holes for tech bindings into an existing non-ski boot? Are there cobblers that can do this? Like if one could get an old pair of Koflachs or something and then get a new sole put on that takes tech bindings for modern AT skis? Seems like it might be cheaper than spending $1000 for the dead bird ski boots that purport to climb like climbing boots.

  14. Ice density in crevasses on the Coleman Glacier

    well, it goes from brittle to ductile at a depth of ~50m. you need 50m of ice thickness to flow, and so most crevasses are 50m or less deep because that's the brittle fracture depth. i don' t think that's what the OP observed though.
  15. Ice density in crevasses on the Coleman Glacier

    However, in practice, glacial ice does change in density with increasing pressure https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=13&ved=2ahUKEwi3zrrhpNfeAhULwFQKHQG8BdkQFjAMegQIBxAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.igsoc.org%2Fjournal%2F3%2F27%2Figs_journal_vol03_issue027_pg568-573.pdf&usg=AOvVaw1xN96PcWhXuAEe_YNQByYE
