Boots for Rainier

I am climbing Mt. Rainier July 24th, 2017 and was wondering if my boots will work. I am considering using my Salomon ALP MTN GTXs with Smartwool PhD Heavy socks. I know they work well with my Black Diamond crampons, I'm just wondering if they will be warm enough.

Thoughts?

Stove board design for snow

I tackled a dilemma today:

How to make a stove board that can prevent melting down into the snow for winter use that can accommodate one large snow melting pot under two burners or two separate pots under two separate burners. At just a hair over 6 oz, I think it turned out pretty well. I'm planning to test it out live this weekend and will report back. In the meantime, I'm interested in any ...

Full hard shell needed for Denali in May?

I'm interested in getting some input from the good folks on Summitpost on this question:
Is a full Gore-tex/eVent hard shell jacket a necessity on Denali's West Buttress route in May? Or would a wind shell suffice?

Gear for Elbrus and Mera Peak

Hi all,

Quite new to mountaineering and the highest I have been to is Mt Whitney in winter so am not sure if the clothing I have currently would be suitable for Elbrus and Mera peak. I plan to do Elbrus this year in summer and Mera peak in the pre-monsoon 2018 season so I wanted to get the gear now that can be used for both.
