  9. La Sportiva Makalu's ??

    I have a pair and love them. perfect for moderate snow routes, good for approach. i loosen them up for the descent once im back on the trail or safer terrain. make sure you wax them up good. they have heel and toe bails for heel and toe bail crampons. stiff sole is nice on steep ice/snow.

  24. Best Helmet?

    I am looking into getting a new helmet and wonder what people consider the best helmet. Best fitting? Easiest to attach a light? Toughest? etc... I have been looking at the Petzl Ecrin Roc and the Black Diamond Half Dome. The Petzl is ~$78 while the BD is only ~$58. Is the Petzl really worth the 20 extra bucks? Any thoughts? thanks
  25. and make sure you are not parked in the middle of the road. the county mounties like to tow people even when the road is blocked.
