  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. The question here is what specifications does the uiaa use to design a half rope as compared to a single rope.
  3. 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.
  4. Guye Peak Improbable Traverse or The Tooth SW Face.
  5. I would be game, but I'm working on Sunday and Tuesday, but then I'm off all week.
  6. Or Serpentine Arete or Guye Peak
  7. Drive out early tmro morning and back late tmro night.
  8. Go to Alpine Hut for boot fitting if you still need advice.
  9. Where was this 12" ledge and on what route?
  10. I can go.... as the Tooth is prob the most sought after climbing objective in the Cascades, aside from all the others.
  11. Adidas poly T-Shirts from Costco and $60 light down jacket
  12. 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.
