This jacket is nearly impossible to beat for the weight to warmth ratio. It's impressively warm and kept me plenty insulated on day pushes in the Tetons and the Lone Peak Cirque. Also, it stuffs into its own pocket and can easily be clipped to your harness or stuffed in your pack out of the way. If you want a little more warmth you could opt for the hooded version or check out the Thermawrap from Montbell. If speed is your game however and you want that extra bit of protection from what the mountains will throw at you, check out the Nano pullover.

This rope is the money for alpine climbing! You'll barely feel it on your back or in your pack on the approach. The small diameter and light weight makes handling it a breeze while leading or setting up belays. It lacks the durability of many fatter ropes but it's not meant for everyday use. Check out the Marathon pro for your workhorse! Another excellent product from Sterling!

These are my favorite every day use nuts. They bite great and seem to fit better than any other nuts i have. The smaller sizes are my favorite in these. I find myself going for those sometime on nearly every climb and they have held whipper after whipper.

Great small cams. Their narrow heads fit great in pin scars and other smaller placements. It's great to have a small cam that offers the holding power of 4 lobes. I think they compliment Black Diamond c3's great. The only caution with these cams is they generally don't work as well in horizontal placements and their durability is questionable. Overall though, a great addition to your rack though.

Great for pin scars and weird funky placements. Used these in yosemite for the past 3 weeks. They saved me from some long scary runouts many a time. Be sure to use a nut tool when cleaning these guys. The cables tend to kink easier then regular nuts.

The wicked lite is the most comfortable synthetic t shirt i have ever worn. It feels like soft cotton and keeps you cool. It's not as rugged as others, but it's not meant to be used for high abrasion activities. It's a great lightweight synthetic for high output activities like trail running, hiking, fast packing, ect. It's also great to just wear around town when it gets blazing out.
