frozen rope still good?

Hey this may be an ignorant question/concern but after a winter mountaineering trip we got caught in a snow storm, our ropes and gear (leashes and quickdraws) got soaked and froze up a few times. After the trip I washed the ropes in a front loading washing machine with rope cleaning solution. I did my best to dry out the ropes but they were still damp, and I had to travel.

Are you ready?

I ran across this article which should be a must read for alpinists. It is a list of questions written by Rolando Gabriotti in response to a number of accidents in Patagonia. We should all be asking ourselves these questions before embarking on an alpine climb.

Sleds for Hauling

What do you use for sled hauling? I have heard of people improvising plastic sleds for sledding, homemade toboggans and expedition sleds designed for hauling.
