  3. idea Let's talk clothing systems.

    For me Brynje base layers with a Polartec Alpha jacket works as the best combination for high output winter activity.

    Did you skin up, trailhead to Lake ? We had to switch to snow shoes as the trail was too narrow for our skis.

  10. Ice density in crevasses on the Coleman Glacier

    G- spotter, the links make for fascinating reading, thank you!
  11. Hi I rapped down into a crevasse on the Coleman Glacier, day before yesterday and encountered near impenetrable ice. Do let me know your opinion on : Does the density of ice vary in crevasses on the Coleman Glacier? ( A glaciologist I spoke with said it does, but there is no pattern. The deeper the crevasse, the denser the ice, lower down because of flow pressure, but there are many other factors...etc Do monopoints work better on bulletproof crevasse ice? (I was wearing brand new Grivel G12's and they were barely making a dent!) I haven't found any answers on crevasse ice density despite scouring the web and asking amongst my ice climbing friends. Many thanks !

  17. 2016/17 Ice Conditions

    Franklin Falls is in. Lots of ice, set up a TR and put in laps. I set up a TR and rope soloed the Chandelier to the extreme right. The ice was really hard and hooking between the flutes was easier than bashing away. Have fun !

  22. Would appreciate any suggestions on using a Kong Gigi/Camp Evo to lower a climber? Have seen the excellent video on safe belaying by Ryan Huetter which works but I believe there is another simpler technique advocated by guide Swis Stockton, which I have been unable to find. Thanks
