Re: Re: Breaking Slings
Exactly my point of posting. Everybody should know not to do this. Seeing what actually happens and how little it takes to snap a sling is a different story.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Ocean Packrafting?
I figured I could use a small kayak anchor or, in most areas I'm spearing, just clip off to the kelp. I've always wanted a packraft for High Sierra lakes but with little moving water in ...

Breaking Slings
I thought this video was terrifying as well as very interesting. Amazing how much the knot can weaken dyneema yet almost help nylon. And that nylon slings faired better than dyneema due to stretch...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Petzl Attache
Closest thing I can currently find in stores is the Metolius Element. I picked up a few the other day, had them at the crag today. A little smaller than the Attache, but close enough. The ga...

Re: Works great
@ Philip Those are beautiful videos! You're moving that packraft just fine. From what I see here, I think it could work for what I want to do….really just moving up and down a 1-2 stretch ...

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
A great jacket- my XL weighs in at just over 10 oz. with its stuff sack. Very simple, functional design- perfect for 3 seasons in the Sierras when combined with a base layer and/or shell system.

Dirty Girl Gaiters
These are great "dry" gaiters. As a trail runner I shopped and shopped for a good, breathable, and lightweight pair...not much out there. Most mainstream gear makers seem to seriously over...
