  1. Preventing Rust

    My BD tools rust a lot but my Petzolds don't. Either way to minimize the rusting at the end of the day I will take a cloth rag and wipe the tools dry. This helps alot. You may be putting them away damp.
  2. pictures would be helpfull. Are you in the neiborhood can I stop by to look at them?
  3. FS BD Bibler Eldorado

    Check you email please to contact me. Thanks.
  4. WTB- Your old size 12 boots

    Where do you live ? I may have some.
  5. WTB: Crampons and other misc items

    I have seen guys that that don't use tents to get to the top of Ranier on the Muir route. They would stay at the stone shelter.
  6. sweet fusion tatoo!

    Hope its a Hena tat. Technology changes. Glad I didn't do a hummingbird tool.
  7. Where are good plaes to find used gear...Koflach

    Outer shells fit two different sizes. Koflach would just put a different inner insulation for the different size feet. If you decided to go with the intuition liner (I recomend it) you may have more flexibility in the size you are trying to get.
  8. "Naked" V-threads

    If the area was comletely dry I've done it. I wouldn't ever consider doing it on a wet climb.
  9. 5) Alti Gloves $30 (Seam Sealed). 9) Grivel G14 w/ OR case. $70. Step-in binding. 11) ARC TERYX Theta AR BIBS. Men's MED/ TALL. $200. Could you do pictures? Gloves are XL? Step in is what format?
  10. Alpine boot question - new climber

    2 cents Don't commit much money to boots yet. Do the scratch and dent or rent plastics at REI or RMI. You probably will be walking in snow for most of the trip. If you plan on more winter stuff then look into plastics. If your sticking with summer Tetons stuff then rent for the one time you do Rainier. My feet get cold easly.
  11. I thought I sent a message but I got the following This user is over their Private Topic limit. What is the style number and the cut number? You can find it on the back side of the tag inside of the pants. Send me a way to contact you.
  12. I've got long underware pants from MEC that I use with the Dead bird siloppette. I like them. I have both the thin long underware and the thicker weight. They use zippers. Pattagonia had a opening on one of their old styles but is not made anymore. Back then I went with MEC because the pattagooch just has so much extra cloth.
  13. fixing a hole in glove

    Seamgrip works mate! I've used it on gloves and crampon puncutred pants. Step one use scotch tape on one side (inside) of the hole or tare then goop the stuff on the other side of the fabric and let it sit. after it cures then remove the tape. The stuff is rubbery even at low temps.
  14. FS: Petzl Quark Tools w/ pics

    Are these the old or new quarks? Got pictures? email or phone number? Chris
  15. Camp Muir last weekend. Found that it starts off OK but when the canister is used then melting snow times increase by quite a bit. Frost was building up on the canister which slows everything down. I was using a qt and a half pot. This time I didn't do tricks to get more power (sit canister in pot of warm water or butane lighter, or second stove or warm the unattached can first inside your coat. I noticed that if I want to start the stove with the self ignition it wouldn't light unless I had the pot on the stove first. It would trap more fuel then the spark could ignite it.
  16. I want to get on Rainier this weekend. I am willing team up with others. My name is Chris my cell is (612)481 0579. I've been here this week at work. I'm from out of town but I brought my gear. I was thinking of a one day push up Disapointment Clever (maybe Friday evening?)but I am flexible. Please call to see if we have the same climbing interests. Please call any time day or night to connect. I expect to head out there to find a group even if I can't find someone on line so call before it gets too late tomorrow or my cell phone won't get reception. Chris I usualy lead waterfall ice. WI3 - WI4 in Minesota and Canada.
  17. Good talking with you today. At this point you and I may not be able to conect but let's check in the morning. Chris
  18. Rainier this weekend

    Check your PM for climbing this weekend
  19. Climbing in Brasil?

    I'm in Sao Paulo now. Where will you be working? Most stuff is sport climbing in this area.
  20. BD Cobra handles

    I've put seam grip on the palm of my goretex backed shell mits to repair holes. The trick for a good grip and not a slippery grip is as follows. I heard about it and tried it. Add table salt on the seam grip after it is applied and before it dries. You know it works. Like little suction cups after the salt desolves. This may work for the Cobra handles.
  21. Wow. I'm guessing you'll never climb with the same confidence again. Get well. What diameter rope do they use at the gym? Do you think he just used his left hand and levered the grigri without using a break hand on the break side of the rope? Where you leading the climb? I see people belaying leaders with some pritty poor technic. Like squeeze the Gri gri closed with their left hand and use their right on the climbers side of the rope and pull rope out.
  22. Kong GiGi or Petzl Reverso?

    I see too many people with too much wear on their reversos. I have a GiGi and when my rope is iced up I'll rap with it (use extra beaner if I need more friction). I think I will go with the ATC guide if I lose mine. Handles small diameter ropes nice I hear.
