      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Helmet vent plugs

Recommended Posts

Hey does anyone know where I can pick up some plugs for the vents on my petzl helmet? I had a few spindrift showers yesterday that froze so much hair to my helmet that I had to wait until the ice melted during the ride home take my helmet off...it was worth it for the 800 meter route we got to climb. smile.gif

Your bio doesn't help me know where you are, but if all else fails Valhall Pure in Squamish BC has them, and doesn't mind shipping. (604) 892 9092 smile.gif

duct tape. i should have thought of that. just goes to show that the more education you get the less intelligent you become.

i climbed a gully on mt bullard in juneau, mostly 60-70 degree snow with some grade 2+ ice. the top of the route was beautiful a hard snow gully from 3-10 ft wide with rock walls on either side. we timed it perfect, as it started snowing partway up the route and now we are supposed to get 18" of pow = death trap on that route. oh, the worst part of the route (other than the 3 hr descent) was taking the boots off at 6am to cross a stream...bbrrrrr.

I use doobies *smoke smoke* Light em then inhale all at once.

 

Normally I like the vents. Did you wear a balaclava or hat? They usually help out. bigdrink.gif
