      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!

Yup, finally gonna get that back hair taken care of.

 

Oh, and I need some backup for the purple stuff - the snow had an affinity for it, yesterday. I used to use maxiglide.

 

Any recommendations?

i've had good luck with glop stopper, but the swix aerosol stuff also seems to be pretty good and goes on more easily, but I would be less inclined to carry it with me because of the pressurized can and bulk. I only tried it because I couldn't find a brick of glop stopper and I was in a rush. BUt, I'm not really sure how different they all are, maybe I just don't get out enough to notice.

Astroglide. Small and compact, goes on easy in the field, glides like no other.

 

 

 

 

Being serious; I keep a little square of swix base prep wax in my pack and it works fine to rub on when things get gloppy. Either that or the red/yellow CH wax would be fine for the warmer stuff. I usually don't have a bunch of the warmer CH on hand, so I just use base prep most of the time.

 

I find that a light hot wax on the skins goes a long way to fight glopping, especially now in the spring when the temps are rising.
