Re: Ultralight mountaineering boots and crampons
I would go for durability over lightweight for mountain rescue, but I'm not in SAR so take that for what you will. This is assuming that you fit into Scarpa/La Sportiva boots. If you have an...

Re: Heavyweight Hiking on Colorado
Pretty light for winter snowshoeing in Colorado! My pack for winter in the Cascades is quite a bit larger.

Re: Ice axe / crampons for early July JMT
1. If you don't pratice using it, it's just a prop for your photos 2. Easy as watching a youtube video and spending an hour practicing. Don't do it on the JMT though, since you might s...

Re: Re: Snowshoe Daypack

Re: The Shame Of Non-UL Gear (slightly sarcastic)
