FS: Brand new, never used - BCA Beacon, Voile shovel and BD

Looking to move some more unused gear. All gear is New but used....errrr.... used but new?

I'd like to see $140'ish for the BCA beacon (dunno-shrug) is it worth that? Maybe $25 each for the Voile shovel and Black Diamond probe? All prices include shipping to the lower 48.

If possible I'd love to "bundle" this stuff together to save on shipping but I will part it out.

All payments via paypal as gift. PM ...

Crossing Amphu Lapcha/Labtsa/Laptsa North to South


I am planning a trek in the Khumbu area and came across Amphu Lapcha pass (or Labtsa as some people call it). Usually it's crossed from South to North en route from Mera Peak to Imja Tse. However I would be going the other way, coming from Imja Tse.
Has anyone done this pass? How accurate are the descriptions which mention rappeling and fixed ropes - are those permanent fixed ropes? Since we would ...

Possible move to Wyoming

Hello. I may have the opportunity in the next few months to take a job in the Jackson Hole, WY area (an actual career job opportunity) and was looking to get some feedback on what life is like in the area, including the climbing and climbing community. Where I currently live there are 0 alpine objectives and there are long drives to reach any decent sport or ice climbs, making it difficult to even make ...

Complete Newbie, is this an achievable goal or am I crazy?

Hi all,

As the headline states, I'm a complete newbie to mountain climbing - I've done quite a bit of hiking through some rough Australian terrain and a little easy climbing (never needed any gear) but otherwise have no experience.

As some back story, I'm a 23 hr old female, with a pretty low fitness level in general (also about 10-15 kg over my ideal weight). I live in North Queensland, Australia and I'd like ...

Hydration Tubes Freezing

Just had a thought for those trying to use hydration systems in winter and dealing with all the different tricks (blowing water back down, insulating, tucking in jacket, etc.) to keep the tube/bite valves from freezing. Since most bladders these days have a detachable hose, why not bring two hoses? If after all the other tricks fail, swap out the hose and put the frozen one in pocket near your body to thaw out, then ...

Boot fitting

I want to buy a mountaineering boot for Aconcagua/Denali. I'm looking at La Sportiva G2 SM (from what I read it should be warmer and lighter than Spantik).
I reached out to a european outfitter and the sizing of the g2 is the same as Batura so I would be pretty happy to order from them, but here comes my problem.
I live in San Francisco area, and I am unable to find anyone who ...
