The Ultegra SL gruppo runs true to it's billing. It delivers Dura-Ace shifting (snappy, accurate shifting) without paying the huge price for the dura-ace label. Especially with the weight loss present in the SL gruppo, these parts are definitely worth the money. My RD is still shifting accurately as ever after many thousands of miles in horrible conditions.

I've used this axe several times this winter on Mt. Washington and it's great. The axe is lightweight, yet sturdy enough that it doesn't feel chintzy. I can confidently say this axe is a great buy for the money. Chopping a seat into bulletproof snow in Tuckerman Ravine was easy, and self-arresting a slide on the Lion Head Winter Route worked as advertised.

These 'pons are exactly as advertised. A light-ish strap crampons perfect for mountaineering, or just hiking up a slushy trail. I would not recommend them for ice climbing, or anything that requires serious front-pointing, as they are not designed for use with plastic boots. If you want serious ice-climbing performance, buy something else. But if you want a light pair of crampons which will add a much-needed sense of safety while ascending steep or slippery slopes, the Vasaks are perfect.
