Re: Snowcreek to Yosemite falls water availability
No water on Snow Creek Trail itself until you get to the rim as of today. Then there's plenty of water in Snow Creek itself once you get to the trail junction / footbridge. Patchy snow and ice ...

So I got a few more Voile bindings, as well as the Rottefella Super Telemarks. The three Voile bindings I have on my floor (two HD Mountaineers and one of the basic cable bindings) all fit sign...

Re: New MLD pole lashing device

Re: Question for 3-pin boot users
