i’ve got some older model cassin/camp crampons that are the predecessor to the 390/490 series. work very well for cascades, neer had to sharpen them. if you want steel maybe these are the crampon you seek?
pricey, but great looking- http://www.backcountry.com/camp-usa-tour-nanotech-crampon?CMP_SKU=CMP3300&MER=0406&skid=CMP3300-POL-AUT&CMP_ID=PLA_GOc001&mv_pc=r101&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=PLA&mr:trackingCode=75AE20C8-0E97-E211-A87C-001B21A69EB8&mr:referralID=NA&mr:device=c&mr:adType=plaonline&mr:ad=79923401917&mr:keyword=&mr:match=&mr:tid=pla-100041373477&mr:ploc=1019094&mr:iloc=&mr:store=&mr:filter=100041373477&gclid=Cj0KEQiAno60BRDt89rAh7qt-4wBEiQASes2tT-GCjMV_pzAj5okBVrBGlsZnWxo6BMK02zaVikGp_YaAmEH8P8HAQ&gclsrc=aw.ds
oh jeez thats a long link
i’ve never used leashes nor lost a ski touring.
so i hear they will still be making the tlt6 mountain,
and adding the tlt7 expedition and tlt7 performance. cutting a bunch of other boots from their lineup.
i think they will come out with a technical climbing worthy tech toe crampon system that will go along with the boot. at least thats the speculation.
version 3 phantoms? tech toe pins for the downhill possible?
its the same FB page as “splitboarding is not the answer” or whatever it was. I never signed up for don’t be splittard but i’m getting the notifications, that he s posting every 20 minutes or so.
he just changed the name of the page…so this is obviously GOATROTT…
good to hear from you buddy!
i’m missing the oregon life. living in enterprise seems nice and quiet. you’re going to rule the wallowas!
as for me, i’m living on the maine coast for the next several months. strange where life leads us!
and the bit about giving away whiskey, we had a 24 pack and another handle stashed at basecamp so it was no big deal…until that all ran out! 10 days stuck in the storm…we built a jib run, some bmx jumps…
then a guided group mistook our course for a pre dug out camp site…they were confused on how the jumps worked as a wind wall.
Jason was calling me a kook for wearing softshell pants and sunglasses on the descent. All good!
I have found that if you train your eyes you wont get watery eyes from the cold. In fact, I did not wear goggles on the descent off denali. Sunglasses worked fine. One less thing to change over…
Just to give people an idea of the timeline and weather, total trip was around a month from Portland (oregon) to Portland.
2 days were spent in talkeetna waiting to fly.
One day was spent riding the “radio control tower” at basecamp before heading up denali.
Time on Denali proper was 14 days base camp to base camp. Summit-ed on day 12.
the rest of the time on the glacier (including about 5-6 days on denali) was spent in stormy conditions, with brief breaks in the weather. Not too harsh though.
2 days were spent in talkeetna after, partying and waiting for the fire to be put out.
and the cover photo of the new backcountry mag eh?!
when did you call me a kook on tgr?
your not the binding din guy are you?
oh, and the picture of me dropping in should be 20,100 feet, not 21,000 feet.
aww dang it! you won? i was still holding out hope that i was gonna win.
let me know if you wanna get rid of those skis at a good price. like a really good price.December 11, 2014 at 1:38 am in reply to: Update your avatar for a chance to win a G3 Bonesaw #686371
i changed it, and finally got into the new forum.
its a good picture eh?
ive got some approach skis for mountaineering, but guesswhat? theyre real skis…and theyve got voile plates for bindings. they weigh 5 pounds for the pair…
mtn approach uses the “grenade gloves” strategy, get as many DOPE boarders on your team as possible and the kids will start to think its the coolest shit ever.
where is grenade gloves now?
I really dig some of his board designs though I suspect we’ll never see something like the the spring break tree hunter in a split 😥 Too bad.
i dont think it is the same corey smith
Mtn approach is dumb
i’d say give it another try. little tweaks go a long ways.
I would like to see more people using a boot/binding quiver. I ride hard boots when its called for, and i ride soft boots when it is better for soft boots.
Crazy they were able to capture the slide on video, dude dodged a bullet for sure…stay safe out there splitters!
if you couldnt tell by the gopro head and steezy gear, they are making a “season edit”
