    Those black plugs are on the axars as well and they fall out and then fill up with water or whatever so you should tape those holes up.
  3. Littlewet TR??

    Not to bust your bubble but its hovering around 5degrees c right now with a forecast of 7c for the rest of the week. Id say a week of warm temps will proly make most of the climbs out of condition considering most are just barely surviving now. Pray for cold
  4. Littlewet TR??

    I have a rope for you but considering: 1) silk degrees apparently never complety forms, 2) Salmon stakes is hardly a grade 3 especially if the tube is 3+, not really worth ever going back for, 3) there are no trees worth tying in to or rocks for that matter, 4) I got soaked to the bone with slush in my toes and so should every one else!! it may not be worth the trouble Fern: first we tried to cross up river rock hopping, I fell in on the first rock hop since it was ice covered and we realized we needed to wade. We didnt go back to the salmon bar since we were now too far, so it was fairly deep. On the way back however we chose the salmon bar which was just as deep but had nice rocks to walk on. This time i just wore my boots, which are now rotting on my heater at home.
  5. Littlewet TR??

    Quite chilly, hovering around knee deep with a few mid thigh surges. Good luck, might want to bring a towel.

  7. anybody shave their head?

    Go buzz cut first, say a closed setting on the shaver, no gaurd. Bald is only for a very few guys, 9/10 very very short is better than bald. Isnt it interesting that what 5 yrs ago this haircut would put in the Nazi lover Skin head gang and now lots of dudes sport it. Once again bail scene on the bald approach go short first. Jesse Lost it all by 25 !!

  10. access questions

    frm bc4x4.com Due to all the recent heavy rain, the East Harrison Forest Service Road and the Florence Lake Forest Service Road are now closed due to several severe road and bridge washouts. Crews are working on repairs however it will probably be at least a full week before the roads are open to public vehicles again. Please make their jobs easier by staying out of these areas until all repairs are complete. thanks!

  12. Question on crampons

    G12 all the way!!! First havve you looked at this crampon, 1) woa wicked front points its like having 2 ice picks on your feet, they are as thick as the sabers fronts are wide. 2) you can move them closer together or further apart or even go for a mono point. 3) the bottom teeth are way more agressive than the sabers, you can replace the front points if they wear out. 4) quick release adjustable sizing so you can make them really small for travel then snap on your foot no bolt to mess with like the saber. If your like me and change your foot wear but use the same crampons. you wont piss off your partner when you have to size them for your boot you chose to wear that day while he freezes at the belay. 5) you can get rid of the stupid front thing that you slide the webbing through on the toe bail. 6) they dont ball up the walk awesome and climb steep ice awesome. I dunno man sabers WERE awesome and still do the job but the g12 are ahead of their time I have had them for a while, July 2002 is when i got mine , thats the crampon to buy dude, oh and you mile as well spend the thirty canadian bucks and buy the antibots the whole gallon jug of water thing is a pain you spend 10 just buying stupid jugs then another 5 buying twist ties. Thats my 02 cents Jesse
  13. Silveretta 404's vs. 500's

    I have the 404's my partner has the 500's they both seem good the 500's are light and a pound is quite a bit in my world. The thing i thought was differnet and most important is the rear step in. on the 404 i have a metal bar on either side of my foot that attaches to the plastic step in on my rear end of my foot then goes down to the base plate. This whole entire piece comes out of the binding when I bail, as was mentioned earlier. But I heard that the metal pieces break quite easily and most people carry a spare, cost 75$ i think for the entire rear step in, this spare may be harder to come by now that the 500's are out. I have never broke one but I weigh 160 and I only use them for approachin climbs. thats what i heard anyways

  15. New Squamish 14 pitch 11a

    so this climb starts just left of sticky fingers? I dunno if any one has the old guide but on page 80 you can see sticky fingers and deadend dihedral, where would the top of pitch 2 be in relation to the top of deadend dihedral? And lastly did any one get on this thing? How is it ? any thing worth mentioning. Thanks in advance Jesse
