Down Midlayer and Shell

I'm pretty new to all this. I have the Patagonia Alpine Kit top base, insulation, and shell layer. They are thin, light and pretty darn warm, especially when moving. On a recent trip in the 30's and snowing the Patagonia Kit worked perfectly, if not a bit too warm.

I recently tried a Arcteryx Cerium SV Jacket. I love it, I want it, but I'm not quite sure where to use it. The Patagonia Shell ...

Vancouver BC Suggestions

Hi all,

My partner and I will be going to Vancouver BC for the first time this summer, looking to have a couple days in the city and then maybe 3 days backpacking. We're looking for good climbs in the area that can be done in maybe 2 days that involve some good views and preferably no glacier travel (since we don't want to bring a rope). We have experience in steep snow, but would ...

Mexico Advice

Hi! My friends and I are looking into a quick trip to Mexico to climb Pico de Fraile, Itza and just a quick jaunt up Arista de Humbolt. We are all experienced mountaineers and climbers. We are looking into a guide service to basically take away the logistics. From looking at the routes, a guide is not necessary but might be nice for some in our party. Are their any inexpensive services that will work ...

Looking like a great year for snow!

I think it was 2011 or so the last time there was so much snow. When climbing 14ers it was into late May that you needed winter equipment.

barnard to trojan traverse?

Has anyone personally done the Barnard to Trojan traverse? Based on this trip report I am thinking about doing a Shepherd Pass to Russell trip. Wondering how sketchy the traverse over from the Bowl would be.

Any reason NOT to use 10-point crampons for Denali?

Heading to Denali in May. (West Buttress) Had always planned to use my BD Sabretooths. Now, looking at ways to lighten my pack, I learn about the Petzl Irvis Hybrid, so I pick up a pair to try.

Half the weight. Definitely not as "burly" or aggressive, but even on blue ice, I would think that the steel front half would offer enough purchase. I've used BD Contact Strap crampons on blue ice before without ...

New Here... looking for the like minded...

Just a random shout in the dark.... I live in Las Vegas and looking to explore the areas surrounding my crazy city. I've got some miles under my belt, have joined meetups and groups... And now I'm here. My "normal" friends don't share the passion of being outside as I do and I just WANT TO BE OUT there more. I'm open to ideas and can usually work my schedule to make things happen. Sooooo ...
