The Lynx is a versatile crampon. With a modular front point system that allows many options: dual or mono-point, long or short, and adjustable stainless steel toe bail wire for boots with toe welts. Toe bindings can be adjusted to accommodate boot width and provide sufficient point length. Great for the high mountain trip where steep or vertical ice/snow walls may come into your path.
Osprey Volt 75-
This pack is light for its class in pack size, but the features of this streamline pack are amazing. After hauling 65lbs up to high camp on Mt Baker, this comfortable pack made the grade “A+” The Volt series doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that the other packs in the Osprey line offer. But the low price and roomie interior made for simple packing. Looking forward to future trips the team will have to go to a larger volume, but for a high mountain overnighter, 4 day jaunt on the Appalachian trail, or 5 day hike through Sequoia, this pack will impress.
Laser Sonic Ice Screw-
Ice screw with integrated handle. For rapid ice protection on the edge of certain falls. The innovative handle makes placing the screw a breeze. The design also allows the screw to be removed when the rope is still attached helping to prevent accidental loss. Very strong and very durable. Proved to be our best friend while rappelling on the glaciers on Mt Baker in Washington.
