    How rigid? How warm? I'm pretty happy with the Garmont Momentum as a not-deep-cold (200g/m^2 insulation) winter boot and it has a good stiff sole; I've put flexible crampons on it but I wouldn't want...

    Like many, I never met Gene, but he had a substantial impact on me through the Guide and his leadership on the 4k committee. I know people like to bag on listbagging but it was instrumental to making...

    The weather exposure from Webster Cliff south of Webster should not be underestimated. I did it on a January day with 60+MPH winds and we probably spent more than half of the ridgeline time on the...

    I forget where I was reading, but apparently they were dubious about reaching the ground from their anchor, so they chose to do this short rap onto a ledge to be sure. Since it was such a short rap...

    I think the rule is camping *on* 2 feet of snow. It'd be tricky to demonstrate you still have a two foot base after digging out. Gathering the snow also sounds like it would be difficult to do if...
