Sorry I dont already know this, but does all of that duct tape impead on self areesting? good pic and congrats btw!
The duct tape is only wrapped around the head of the ax a couple of times to hold a thin piece of closed cell foam. The foam insulates your hands so the ax doesn't act like a heat sink and suck all the heat out of your fingers leading to frost bite. It won't impede a self arrest.
It's a very good trick with the foam on the axe !
Great shot! I hope to get there one day...
Congratulations...must have been an amazing feeling to stand there!
Thank you. It did feel amazing after all that hard work.
Some day I'll have to be standing there on the same spot. Denali is one of my dream goals. Well done!
Cheers Josh Lewis.
You guys look comfortable there. Looking forward to it next year if I'm lucky. Cheers
