Mammut Infinity Protect Rope - 9.5 - 70m

Mammut Infinity Protect Rope - 9.5 - 70m

I recently purchased the Mammut Infinity Protect 70 meter 9.5 rope to replace my 70 meter Sterling Evolution Velocity BiColor 9.8 - 70m.  My Sterling had become heavy, fat and had a few soft spots on one end.  I owned it for about 2 years and used it predominately for multi-pitch trad and multi-pitch sport climbing.  Although falls were taken on the Sterling rope, it was by no means a projecting rope...

I love this rope. Its light weight and handles great. It has taken countless big falls and has still lots of stretch and no soft spots.  This is an awesome rope for sport climbing.  My husband has a slightly different opinion.  I think that because of his weight the rope stretches a little too much.  We found that if he fell on the rope we needed to rest that end of the rope for a little while to get some of the stretch back.  Multiple falls tended to make for a hard catch after a while. He weighs around 150 pounds, I weigh around 115 pounds...

2016-2017 Ice Climbing Gear Kit

Lets face it, having the right gear for the day's objective can make being in a uncomfortable environment much more enjoyable.  Technology is constantly changing, gear is getting lighter, and we have more options than ever before.  Through trial and error I have dialed in my ICE CLIMBING GEAR KIT.  My goal here is to show you exactly what I use on a day of ice climbing and explain how the whole system works together.  I will also show you how I may slightly alter this system depending on our weather or objective. 

Black Diamond Co-Efficient Hoody

I love the Black Diamond Coefficient hoody. It's the versatility and fit that sets it apart from other choices in my gear bag. It shines as casual wear in town and it transitions as a must-have for a day of climbing or ski touring. We all have some clothes we seem to always grab first...well, that's the Black Diamond Coefficient hoodie for me. It is my go-to piece for a day in the mountains! Super comfortable, looks good and works with me on tough terrain!
