  1. sold! Cans of old Coleman Fuel

    You can blend it off in your car's gasoline tank. Just pour in a pint or so then fill with gasoline as usual. It won't hurt anything (Source - I was Texaco's Mgr of Fuel Tech Support). In the winter you can up that to a quart per tankful. If you'd rather use it in something like a lawn mover, you can go as high as 1:4 Coleman:gasoline.
  2. New in the original package. Cascade B rated pick for the first gen. Quarks and Ergo Quarks. Does NOT fit Nomic or new Quark. Hard to find any more, but here's one for less than original retail. Only regret is I don't have a pair to sell you. $35 + 5 for US shipping. Canadian shipping by quote.
  3. Hey, on the off chance there's anyone still using first generation Quarks (or the Ergo Quarks) and needs new picks - you know that none of the Petzl tools use the same pick and that the original (Cascade) picks are all but unavailable anywhere. Well with a bit of work (one hole to drill and 2 minutes with a hacksaw) you can fit CAMP Awax picks to the Quark. They are a perfect match for pick length and angle and, being a smaller cross section, they penetrate ice "like buttah". I removed the hammer from my Quark, and don't miss it, but if you're a machinist I imagine you could mill out the Awax pick to allow the hammer/adze to stay in place. Best part - the Awax picks are still in stock at CAMP/Cassin and are selling for $15. At that price how can you not give it a try?
  4. idea Cable bindings for Mountaineering Boots

    As others have said, for freeheel skiing in Silvretta just don't lock the heel down. But I took it one step further - since I basically only need a nordic-style ski for fire road approaches to ice climbs, I didn't even mount the heel pieces. There's your weight savings!
  5. They're old, they're used, they're a bit of history. Anyone looking for Footfangs for their old gear display?
  6. Looking for older BD screws in serviceable shape. Sharpness is NOT a concern, but plating must be in VG-EX condition still. Rust on the hanger is OK as long as it's not out of control. Ideally will have knobs but I may consider knob-less Turbos. Only looking for 10s and 13s. I can sharpen your other screws as a barter/trade if you have screws that need some love. I may forget to check here for replies, so if you really want to get my attention, email me at Mike (at) AlpineEndeavors (dot) com
  7. Wtb 13cm screw, BD express or Petzl laser speed

    See my reply on MtnProj.
  8. WTB - Telemark Boots(Size 26.5/US 10)

    Question about the size. My last tele boots were 27.5 which was US 9.5.
  9. Partner left it on the roof of the car. It's an Elph in a ratty black case. Modest reward. Pls reply to this same post on mountainproject if you find it, as I don't come to this site as often. Hell, I don't go to ANY site as often as I'm on mtproj!

  13. WTB BD Rages

    I feel your pain. I now regret ever selling my first ice axe (95 cm wooden Stubai). I'd love to track down the guy I sold it to and buy it back. Anyone know a guy names Chuck Wild?
