  1. I'd be for sticking with the pitons. It would be a literal travesty to bolt that traverse. ...You don't take a 1960 Chevy and put a waist and shoulder strap seat-belt in it because it would be "safer": you stick with the existing waist restraint device because that is how it came stock. That said, you might need to replace the piton.
  2. Sweet Climb!! One of the Classics.
  3. Unsafe to climb on one double rope?

    The question here is what specifications does the uiaa use to design a half rope as compared to a single rope.
  4. Unsafe to climb on one double rope?

    If you have to bivouac, a thicker rope makes for a warmer blanket and for that reason would be safer for cold weather climbs as you would have more material with which to use as insulation to stave of hypothermia.
  5. Partner for Tmro

    Guye Peak Improbable Traverse or The Tooth SW Face.

  12. The Tooth This Thursday

    I can go.... as the Tooth is prob the most sought after climbing objective in the Cascades, aside from all the others.

    Adidas poly T-Shirts from Costco and $60 light down jacket
  14. Preferred boot fit

    What I did to my plastic boots that were just a little too small was this. I literally cut the toe end of the boot liner off. My toes simply project from the liner into space, inside the plastic shell. I have absolutely no problem with them now and I have the snugness that I like in the instep and ankle. It took some balls too cut off the end of the liner boot, but It turned out to be very worthwhile.
