Painful Bump on Shin from Mountaineering Boots

So I have this nice big red bump that developed on my shin from my boots after doing about 12 miles, 4000 ft, this weekend. It took about 3 days to develop. It is painful to touch or have it rub, sort of like an ingrown hair feeling but much more spread out, maybe an inch across. Happened once before as well.

It is not a big deal right now as I am home, but ...

Tying In to the Middle of a rope team

Hi everyone, I'm very new to this. In fact I havn't been on a rope team yet. I just purchased a Black Diamond Couloir Harness and was reading the included instructions. It gives directions for tying in directly to the rope directly and not to use a locking carabiner.

I sent an email to Black Diamond asking, "How should I tie in directly if I am in the middle of a rope team for glacier ...

Pulleys for crevasse rescue

Any recommendation on favorite pulleys for crevasse rescue and reasons why? For instance, "x brand is better since you get x ounces in weight reduction with only x reduction in weight capacity".

Thanks for any insight!

Trail-running/hiking shoe

I am looking to purchase some trail-running/hiking shoes for long hikes/runs. From 10-45miles of mixed jogging and hiking.

Looking for a shoe that would be light, but that would provide good cushion (is this combination possible?).

Any recommendations?

I can buy La Sportiva Quantum or Wildcat for about 70$ should I get either of those? Are they must fit if I know my size in other LS shoes?

Re: Meniscus Repair....

Will they be removing the damaged part of the meniscus or is it a true repair? Big difference. I've had two tears cut out (both radial complex tears, one on each knee). Lucky, my doctor is fairly aggressive given he is one of the orthopedic sugeons for the US Ski and Snowboard teams. On my first one the intention was a repair, but once they got in they decided that the damage was to severe ...

Interior decorating - climbing wall

OK Summitposters, we all know you can climb. Plenty of you can build a climbing wall. But can you decorate?

I've got about a twenty-foot ceiling height to work with, thinking about putting in a climbing wall.

Here's the tricky part: it's in the formal dining room - one of those big rooms that doesn't get used much except for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but has to look nice. A plain plywood wall with bright plastic ...

Ways to train for 'airiness'

I'll admit it. I am scared of heights. I don't like aretes, cliffs, etc.
