  1. Hi , I am Interested in these. What boot size were the Scarpas you wore them with? Thanks Sujay
  2. For me Brynje base layers with a Polartec Alpha jacket works as the best combination for high output winter activity.
  3. Most welcome! Hope you find it. Cheers!
  4. Gearexpress has a couple of models of the "Safe Tech".http://www.gearexpress.com/metolius-safe-tech-mens-deluxe-harness.html
  5. These skis come with two binding options- universal that will fit any boot and 3 pin bindings. Voile also sells a cable accessory for the 3 pin binding https://us-store.altaiskis.com/product/hok-ski-updated-2016/

  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 !
  12. 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 !
  13. If you are in Mussorie then get in touch with Krishnan Kutty at the Hanifl Center http://haniflcentre.in/ Kutty headed the India operations for NOLS for many years. He has been a regular visitor to Bellingham/Seattle for decades. We climbed Banderpoonch ( visible from Mussorie) together a couple of years back. Cheers!
