  2. La Sportiva Men's Nepal EVO GTX Boot- size 46. Great condition.

Soles have a little wear from trail time, but are in great condition. Not brand new, but very very good. Price firm. $295
  3. Brand new New England Pinnacle Standard dry treated. 9.5mm 70m. $170 firm.

  7. [TR] MRNP - Gib ledges/ DC 5/27/2012

    Way cool pic. Yeah, we had to traverse along rocks towards the end of the ledges- then you had to go climbers left for a rope length- below the serac looking thingie above the chute. We cut right below that feature, across what felt like a hollow snow bridge. (running belay there) Once across, 3 easy rope lengths to the top.
  8. Trip: MRNP - Gib ledges/ DC Date: 5/27/2012 Trip Report: Sorry I don't have any pictures of the route- my helmet cam died on me and I was too busy clutching my tools during the ascent. We headed up to Muir on the 27th, camped at 8800 due to poor vis and running late. Skinned up to Muir Sat to great weather, clear skies. Left Muir at 0200 Sunday morning, great cramponing up to the start of the ledges. Began the ledges as the sun began to creep over the horizon. It was nice to have a bit of light for route finding. What stuck me was how loose the snow seemed, esp compared to what we had encountered on the approach. It seems a lot of the snow on the route is deposited from falling from above- it had not consolidated well- seemed to be crunchy and crumbly on top of good stuff. This slowed us down on some of the more exposed sections as we had to side climb with two tools more than anything else. When we got to the gulley- the sun had come up and really started to rain down chunks of ice and rocks on us. Luckily the gulley was somewhat protected. However, we found the gulley heavily crevassed so we set up an ice screw anchor, and my partner had to climb left over the glacier to circumvent the gulley. Finally arriving at the top, we traversed a long time, finally hooking up with the DC route. The snow was really soft, and having encountered multiple hidden crevasses, we opted to descend. We found the DC route super slushy at the bottome, with 4 inches of water snow on top of hard pack. It made downclimbing difficult- feet kept sliding in the soft stuff and not getting purchase inthe hard stuff underneath. It was 1030- seems that is a bit late to be on the DC route. Lots of open crevasses seen, as well as a slide on the Ing Direct, near where last year's big slide happened. Approach- skis to Muir, cramps the rest of the way. Good hard pack to the entrance of the ledges. Gear- axe, tool, 3 pickets, 2 screws, 30 m rope, helmets, aluminum cramps.

  10. Med's L GoLite synthetic jacket

    I've had it for 6 or so years, wore it once or twice. Will post a pic tomorrow.
  11. $250 Brand new tent with floor. Ultra-lite, expedition-ready, and simple to pitch, our Shangri-La 3 is a model of backcountry versatility. This 4 season teepee-style shelter sheds wind and weather brilliantly and can be used by itself, with the Shangri-La 3 Floor, or with the Shangri-La 3 Nest inner bug tent. You can pitch it with the micro-adjustable aluminum pole (included), on snow, over a paddle or ski pole, or hang it from a branch via its top loop. Dual roof vents provide excellent air flow, reflective stake out loops keep you from tripping in the middle of the night and the hydrophilic thread at the seams expand when wet--sealing the seams and eliminating the need for liquid sealant. Shelter Specs Type: 3 Person Height: 62 inches Area: 59 sq. ft | 5.48 sq. m Main Body Weight : 23 oz | 650.9 g Pole Weight: 13oz | 367.9g Stake Weight: 3oz | 84.9g Ultra-lite, ultra-strong, and waterproof Silicone-elastomere fabrics allow their fibers to stretch without separating or breaking, and this makes them stronger than conventional PU-coated (or PU/siliconized) fabrics for a far lower weight. || Silicone impregnation means that the silicone completely permeates the fibers and also makes the fabric hydrophobic, so it doesn't soak up water and gain weight. It is also less likely to wear away or degrade in UV light than PU. || 30 denier SilLite weighs just 1.76 oz/sq. yd (60 g/sq. m) and has a tear strength of 9.5 lbs (4.3 kg). It is significantly lighter and stronger (for its weight) compared to conventional tent PU-coated fabrics. Features Comes with 6 Y-Stakes Uses Flexible, component-system 4-season shelter
