Gear Review

Be careful about sizing.

Ordered the Lynx crampon and they seem sweet. Problem is I have a size 12 boot and the regulars only go up to 11.5. Argh!!! The website says "one size" so I thought I'd be okay. Don't make the same mistake I did. I called in and learned there's actually a "long" version. Make sure to ask for that. Just figured this out and unfortunately taking off tonight for my Denali expedition, without my crampons. In scramble mode now -- this totally sucks.

Always try on your gear and pack/repack your bags way in advance of leaving for a big trip! And bring spares for essential equipment.
