      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!

Blown edge repair?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone suggest a good shop in Portland for a blown edge and base repair. I'd post the photo, but it's so disturbing that I fear the moderator would have to edit it.


Other than that, please pray for more snow and help put an end to this type of needless carnage. cry.gif

I once blew out my old Rossi 4s's in a big way. I decided to save some money...as I was in high school and had none...and made the repairs myself. I started with a really good epoxy, warming it so that it would fill he blown side wall completely, I then used more epoxy and fiberglass to fill the hole. I p-texed the base and reground the edges. Finally I airbrushed the sidewall white again. It was beautiful and the only way I could tell that I had ripped the edge off was that the Rossignol label was missing from the sidewall. I think I skied them twice before I cut them in half and turned them into furniture. SO...how bout a nice park bench?
