  1. for sale Dynafit TLT8 Carbonio size 29

    Keen, don't you wear a 31 boot? Or has Dynafit resumed making boots bigger than 30.5? I though Scarpa and Sportiva were the only game in town for Mondo 31+
  2. Still on the hunt, anyone holding?
  3. sold! Closed - Old AAC volumes

  4. for sale Scarpa Alien 1.0 size 29

    Can't use the boots but good to see you posting having noticed the blog hasn't been updated in a several years. Have met some of your contemporaries from climbing in the Selkirks. The blog had a big impact on how I view kit for my time in the hills climbing and ski touring (no surprise I'm touring on a Praxis Yeti or GPO with a lightweight Sportiva boot and a very simple ruck sack).
  5. I have an R1 hoody as well (size M), and a Cap 4 hoody (size L) and Cap 4 hoody one piece suit (also L). But the Piton Hoody works better and is more versatile for my uses, especially ski touring. Size wise I am the same build and wear a large in the Piton. The hood and high collar are really well designed. The industry has moved away from these types of pieces it seems towards "active insulation" but they aren't as durable and honestly are just trying to solve a problem I don't have. I am starting to not wear my Piton as much so I don't wear it out!
  6. Like the title says, I'm on the hunt for a (discontinued) Mens L Patagonia piton hybrid hoody, preferably in the Purple. I have a Gray/Green zipper one that I love, but want to have a backup as it is my ski touring layer of choice. Anyone holding? Thanks!

  8. Year old thread... I know. I have been going fast and heavy by wearing my ski boots (Sportiva Sideral 2.0) for long approaches, carrying my climbing boots. But it is heavy and makes for a cold change over (twice!). However, finding patches of good snow and good skiing is certainly better on the way out with a real ski, boot, and bindings. For shorter approaches, Silvrettas continue to be the binding of choice for me. However, I have thought about making some boot soles that would attach to the ski boot like a crampon, and then have tech fittings to integrate with my touring skis.
  9. question HMG 4400 ice pack vs Osprey Aether Pro

    Black Diamond Mission 75. Relatively inexpensive, just works. Not the fanciest, but perfectly functional. Has a side access zipper if you don't like tube-only access in the big sizes.
  10. for sale Petzl Nomics (2), $300

    Ed-the-Ted: These older Gen2/3 Nomics have a hole under the pommel to securely attach some cord for a tether. You will notice many Nomic users adding some 5mm cord through this hole for their tethers. This looks like recycled 6mm Mammut Contact sling material instead of cord, but same idea. It is different than the 2018 redesigned Nomic pommel. See pictures here: https://coldthistle.blogspot.com/2010/11/old-nomic-and-new-nomic.html
  11. sold! All sorts of crampons

  13. Still looking for long center bars for my Darts, thx.
  14. What were the old toe bails? I am looking for a set of non-loop wire toe bails (i.e. like the G20), could potentially use your old ones. Thx.
