  1. Silveretta bindings, destroyed feet- solutions?

    I don't have a solution but wanted to say that the same thing happened to me. I went from never having used the gear before, to skiing about 14 miles in two days. I got the blisters and worse, hurt my achilles badly enough that I had to bow out of a trip to Alaska when I hadn't recovered a month later. Maybe easing into using the boots/bindings/skis would help. But I also think the skiing just exacerbates any flaw in the way your boots fit. I'll be reading this thread if anyone has any suggestions.

    sprayyyyyyyy For me, climbing a couple thousand feet of easy stuff and skipping the 2 good pitches would feel that way. No accounting for personal taste...

    Looking for a partner to climb in Leavenworth on Saturday 5/3, maybe some cragging at Careno or something like that. Eric 206-849-1223

  6. Thule ski and bike rack with fairing

    Thule roof rack with attachments for skis and mountain bike, plus fairing. This is in good shape, hasn't seen a lot of use. It fits a 2002 Subaru Impreza. From looking at Thule's website I believe this will fit any car that does not have rain gutters. $225 OBO. Email or call Eric, 206-849-1223

    Bump, price drop. Someone buy this.
  8. Thule ski and bike rack with fairing

    It attaches via a clamp, the foot has a rubber base, and a little clamp hooks on the edge of the car's roof, and locks. I believe this fits any car without a raingutter.

  18. You're worried that skiing is having a negative impact on your hill climbing workouts?? You've got your priorities backwards. Your workouts are to make it easier to go have fun! If you are a beginning or not very good skier, yes, I think your quads and other big leg muscles will be getting worn out skiing. This will lessen as your skill improves. Technique makes a huge difference. When I want to train for skiing, I do stairs and lunges. This helps with skiing generally, backcountry skiing more so.

  22. [TR] Mt. Shuksan - Fisher Chimneys 6/1/2013

    Hopefully Sol's beta is gold but even if it's not, don't be afraid of the bushwhack. Take some gardening gloves.
  23. Has anyone actually rapped with a dulfersitz?

    The top part is obvious, it's at the bottom you have a chance to screw up and end up slightly cliffed out. Thank you for your concern.
  24. Has anyone actually rapped with a dulfersitz?

    Yeah, I've done it for a couple of short raps. One time when I screwed up the descent from Outer Space. It actually hurts your neck more than your groin. It's not that hard to keep it together for a short period but I wouldn't want to do anything more than vertical, or longer than about 50'.

    The BD Quadrant comes to mind.
