      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!

last thing i need is more gear but just out of curiosity, is that snaggletooth a steep snow crampon or is it good for vert ice? that front point seems wide for waterice penetration.

The sweet spot for the Snaggletooth crampons is definitely steep snow, neve, and easy water ice or rock. They destroy brittle ice, but fortunately you don't find much of that in the cascades. I've climbing some short grade 5 pitches in them and up to m6. I think they are the perfect all around crampon for around here unless you are doing a lot of water ice climbing. Do pretty well in the rotten ice often found in the cascades, as they don't sheer through like vertical points would.
