For remote trips its worthwhile bringing one entire spare binding, or if your in Dynafit just a heel, or both a heel and toe piece.


Been an avid fan of his for well over 15 years now....

WILDSNOW.COM

The best info across the board, on this entire planet, for any AT stuff.


Yes, I too highly recommend the wildsnow website. I've used it many times to get detailed reviews of specific boots and bindings.

Back in the days of foam-core skis with 3-pin bindings, I saw bindings come loose... but my own bindings, set in a lot of epoxy, never did.

Better bring an inflatable leg splint too if you're ripping binding screws. And keep the rescue chopper on standby.


PS.... 5 minute epoxy takes 5 weeks at low temperature.



I ripped out a binding a couple of years ago on day 2 of a 4 day trip. If I'd had the epoxy and steel wool, I probably could have finished the tour. As it was, we had to bail, with my binding held on with straps.

I'm well aware of the effects of temperature on chemical reactions, such as epoxy curing. It doesn't take a whole lot of ingenuity to figure out a way to keep glue warm for 5 minutes.

But how many glaciers would you melt in the process, smartypants? Huh?
