  2. Satellite phone for sale

    The biggest changes in satellite phone technology are the size of the phone. This phone is about 30% bigger than current Iridium phones. The phone is being sold by an organization. We cycle our phones out every 4-5 years.

  4. Mount Vernon partner

    I moved back to WA (Conway area) about a year and a half ago. With an almost 2 year old son, my windows for getting out climbing can sometimes be narrow. I'm looking to connect with fellow Skagit climbers for climbing in the Skagit Valley (not Erie). Often on the after work or partial day plan. Interested in 5.10- to 5.12-. PM me if interested.

  8. Pulling plastic

    Clean and dress (tape) the open wounds until they heal. From now on, after every gym session, use an emory board to file/sand areas of redness and friction on your hands. This does two things - (1) prevents the large build-up of calluses that will eventually rip off and (2) it helps to toughen your skin.
  9. John, nice TR with some beautiful shots. We were at the base of your new route, In A Silent Way, this past weekend (maybe 5 days after you). I'm disappointed that you or one of your team members chose to take a surface dump right near the base of the climb with toilet paper. While the route looks good, that is certainly not an appropriate way to "leave your mark". If it wasn't your team, someone did it in the last week and there certainly aren't many people that make it up there this time of year.
  10. Mondo sizing - 28. ~Size 10 US Mens selling for $75 plus $10 shipping MSRP - $169.95 perfect for T-Races, T1's, and any 3 or 4 buckle AT boot. These Scarpa Intuition Liners were purchased last year and were skied on less than 10 times. They are only very lightly used. THESE LINERS HAVE NEVER BEEN CUSTOM HEAT MOLDED. They can be custom heat molded 2 times. When purchased new, these liners do not come with insoles and this pair of liners do not have insoles included. I'm selling them because I purchased new boots that already came with Intuition liners. Please email (christopheragnew(at)gmail.com) or PM if you are interested, have questions, or want more information. http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/showphoto.php?photo=42563&cat=516 http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/showphoto.php?photo=42565&cat=516 http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/showphoto.php?photo=42564&cat=516 http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/showphoto.php?photo=42566&cat=516 The manufacturer says: These heat-moldable liners are now pre-molded to speed up the customization process. They are designed to have an overlap entry instead of a tongue to give them the necessary ankle support without the requirement for additional ankle reinforcement. This overlap design is also the only total contact liner, which means that, unlike foam injected liners, the liners are in contact with the entire surface of your foot. This design has been proven to offer the best performance and the most comfort for all users. Not only do you get a truly customized fit, these are much warmer and lighter than traditional stock liners to include injection liners to provide superior warmth and will decrease the weight of your boots by around 1 pound (0.5kg). What makes Intuition Liners Ultralon foam unique is their molding processes which are made from thermo-forming closed cell foam. This foam consists of millions of tiny cells, or bubbles, which are created by pouring measured amounts of the mixed ingredients into a two-piece mold which is sealed and heated under tremendous pressure. The material is heated slowly and evenly to a specific temperature and pressure, and then is allowed to cool to ambient temperature before the mold is opened and the foam is removed. This process results in very uniform cell structure and a very high percentage (70% - 80%) of cross-linkage between molecules in each cell wall. This high percentage of cross-linkage between the cells means that the foam does not allow gases in each of the tiny bubbles to migrate to the others, which would change the shape of the foam. The membrane between the cells is also treated with chemical filler which creates a more homogeneous membrane. All of this results in the ability to mold the foam into a specific shape when heated, which the foam will retain when cooled with reduced heat-related shrinkage, high quality memory, and resistance to packing out. This foam can also be re-heated and molded more than once without damaging its structural integrity or quality.
  11. This piece of news about a Nepali getting naked on the summit is inaccurate but has been circulated for too long. Lhakpa Sherpa took off his down jacket, exposed only his chest, lit a flame, and said a prayer for world peace. Some media sources have said he removed all of his clothes for publicity - this is not true.
