  1. Hey Blake if you want those two ropes of mine you can have them. and I have an extra rap device too, and a few old clunker lockers too. PM me if you want directions to my house and you can have them.
  2. Yeah, no core shots or anything. The main issue with the 60m static and the reason I am retiring it is because the sheath slippage at the end of rappels is getting annoying. I suppose you could cut 20 or so feet of it off though. Hmmm. I say go for it.
  3. Mpaul_hansen and Dane, PM's sent. Yes, The skiing was too good this weekend.
  4. Going skiing tomorrow. Will update again friday afternoon. Hopefully will determine the fate of the x-bows then. Also will re-count available cams. -dt
  5. I am interested. What's the asking price? I need the skins as well. $100 for skis/skins. Skins are older BD purple clipfix skins. I think they have lost a bit of their snazzy out-of-the-box stickyness. I can send pics if you need. -DT
  6. I agree with you. But you should see the harness it replaced...
  7. I have 5 Gal of once-used soybean oil if anyone wants it to make fuel with. Its yours if you come pick it up.

BRAND NEW IN BOX black diamond half-dome helmet - bluish color. $40. NEW but in my closet for three years: BIBLER BIVI SACK regular size, green fabric.

  10. Interesting idea, but I wonder if it could be something else... The higher you go on colfax, the less steep the average slope angle. Perhaps because of this, the upper N face (and small pocket snowfields) get a little more exposure to solar radiation - at least at this time of year. Despite the small size of those snowfields, post-storm accumulations near ridge-top are bound to be both significant and short-lived (do to frequent temperature fluctuations from warm SW flow to cooler NW flow). Topography is a critical parameter in heat flow distribution. One might suggest that even though Colfax lies close to a volcanic center (but still separated by several miles), it - being a topographically significant peak - would dissipate geothermal energy at a greater rate than flat ground - or for that matter, valleys and depressions - therefore causing Colfax (and virtually all other mountains) to have a lower than average geothermal heat flux.
