  1. 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
  2. As a number of us have limited ice climbing experience but are keen to practice our skills would it be a good idea to head out as a group? Hopefully one of the experienced climbers on the forum might step in and guide us.In return we could provide the ride/beer/belay...
  3. Hi I am looking forward to climb some ice. Have all the gear but very little ice climbing mileage. Want to get out on a moderate route for starters. NW Buttress of Chair Peak is what most people recommend. I am happy to belay/follow if you want to lead. Any advice would be much appreciated
  4. Many thanks yet again. Got the package of ice screws and the bag,super fast. They are brand new !
  5. Interested in the "3 Angles and knife blade - sell as a set $15." Still available ?
  6. Excellent condition. Lime Green color.Retails for $189 +tax. Asking $140 OBO .Local pickup in Redmond WA.
  7. What are you expecting for the Big Bro ?
  8. Super trip report Jaime. We were the three climbers (Leif, Sujay, Keli) you passed .It was wonderful to learn about the Traverse challenge from Priti at the belay ledge and we were rooting for all of you. Glad you all made it safely and in style. Cheers!
  9. Sorry to hear that. Hope they get the guys.And you get your gear back.
  10. Would be delighted to have them,there is a wealth of climbing history there!

  13. Need a warm down bag for alpine pursuits. I am 5ft 6 " so would prefer a ' short. Thanks for reading.
  14. My brand new pair of 5.10 Dragon Lace Ups are just too tight for me at a size 9 US.I wear a size 8.5 in the La Sportiva Solutions but these are sized tight for your exact street shoe size. Its advisable to wear these a half size up from your street shoe size if you don't want to wear them like a second skin. Tried them out of the box and couldn't bear the squeeze. They are spanking new. They retail for $165 Asking $130. Moosejaw Five Ten Dragon PM me
