  1. Bolivia - Condoriri & Huayna Potosi

    This is an off topic question but kinda related - What kind of sleeping bag (ie down/synthetic, degree rating) will I need to trek in Bolivia and possibly do some climbing as well. Im def. trekking for a while and might have the opportunity to do some climbing so want a bag that will fit the bill for both. Thanks!
  2. What kind of conditions for 0 degree bag

    Where do you draw the line on what kind of sleeping bag to take - like taking a 0 degree bag for Rainier or any cascade volcano climb? What kind of mountains require what kinds of bags - how high can you comfortably take a 0 degree bag i.e. what kind of mountains etc. I m going to s. america and want to buy a bag that can handle trekking as well as 16,000 feet and above volcanoes? will a 0 degree bag suffice
  3. Best way to become a badass

    Hey there people Dorky question Im sure - feel free to berate me all you like - but Im curious what the best ways are to become a damn good mountaineer/rock climber? I finished the Mountaineers basic climbing course last year (b/c it was the only thing I could afford at the time) and now am trying to look for more/better ways to progress. Im sure the quick answer is climb as much as possible which I am trying to do, but Im thinking maybe more formal training, etc. Anyone want to add me to their badass climbing posse? I'll be the funny guy who drinks alot.
