      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!

Summer storage?

Recommended Posts

How do people store their winter gear; or gear that will be unused for a while? Everything is dry, but is there anything special I should be doing with my crampons/icetools/screws.... what about ropes?

 

Thanks.

I usually wash off and then spray a bit of WD40 to my crampons after ever outing. That way I avoid some rust etc. I do the same with my axe/tools. Skis and snowboards, I just iron on a thick layer of all temp wax and do not scrape it off so it will keep the bases from drying out. Skins get a layer of glop stopper skin wax, and I try to clean out all the crap (rocks, sand needles etc) from the glue bases, and store them in my basement where it tends to be cooler, nice and glue sides touching. I do not use a skin saver, but some people prefer to, since it makes pulling the skins apart easier.

 

Ropes, Ummm, they sit in the bottom of a rubbermaid bin with all the other crap on top.
