Re: Dark Canyon: Allen route
I haven't done the whole thing but I've been in the area a few times and I think there's probably better loops in the area. I don't know if you've been in Dark but the best stuf...

Re: Re: re: Trailroc 235s
I don't have any experience with the Vivos or 150s but I've been using the 235s and while not ideal, they're probably the best shoes I've used. The key is getting the newer blue on...

Re: Re: Removing Black Diamond Trekking Pole Grips

Re: Re Re Need a new camera

@ Eugene (or anyone) re: Anakondas
Eugene, are you using the x countries or the Anakondas? I hadn't seen the Anakondas; they look really good. I've been eyeing the new Roclite 243s and the Anakondas look quite similar and ...

Westcomb Crest (pertex equilibrium)
I've been using a Westcomb Crest for a month or so as a replacement for my lost Houdini. It's pertex equilibrium and weighs only 4 oz in a small. Feature set is very minimal and if I keep...

Re: DP Merrills
Agreed. I've been using a DP2M for a couple months now and it's nuts what it's capable of for the size, price, and weight. I recently made some 16x20 prints for a show and I don't...
