    Selling my pair of La Sportiva Baruntse 43.5EU - 10.5 US. Molded once, used once. Almost new condition! Selling them for 300 including shipping anywhere in US. Killer deal for almost new boots. PM me or text me at 425-260-4346 [img:center]http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-CTC4z1ilB9c/UhW3BK7yLtI/AAAAAAAALck/QEU3PydZUvo/s640/P1100246.JPG[/img]
  8. The First Ascent line of Tents and sleeping bags are vastly underwhelming. Heavy double wall tents at over 10lbs? No thank you. Sleeping bags that don't even give details on their fill weight? Pathetic attempt to enter the gear field.
  9. Terrible news. Hope a speedy recovery!
  10. Thanks for the responses guys! I think I with carry a standard 24" picket and then buy a 36" picket and cut it in half for a 18" picket. Each person will have 2 piece of pro and it will save on weight.
  11. Is carrying 2 pickets overkill, or do many climbers do that? What is the typical setup?
  12. If one uses their ice axe as a second piece of pro it really limits their ability to clear the lip of the crevasse and to use the axe itself to prevent the rope from cutting then into the lip. So does that mean that for a 2 person glacier team that everyone has 2 pickets?
  13. In regards to a 2 person glacier team how much snow protection is required for each member to carry? I remember reading that every member of a glacier team should carry at least 1 piece of pro like a picket or fluke but does that ratio change when there are only 2 people of a team? If each member of a 2 person glacier team has only 1 piece of pro, one can't back up their snow anchor which is always taught. I was thinking that each member of a 2 person team might carry 1 24" inch picket and 1 snow fluke. That way one could arrest the fall and place probably the picket first because it might be easier to place then back it up with a snow fluke for a bomber anchor.
