So, I'm a reasonably experienced downhill skier. Id like a pair of ski's that i can do both some resort skiing and some alpine downhill. im 6'1" and 145lb's, are these a good pair of ski's for me?

(if it helps, i have a less aggressive style and tend to take a longer curving turn rather than sharp repetitive turns, but given local terrain im need to be able to do both)

Ok, its decided, i AM going to purchase SOME cams. But what i need to know now is, if I were to buy 3 cams, and a set of nuts + a set of hexes, which three cams should i buy to best (and most flexibly) diversify my rack?

PS: I live in Central California and most routes will probably be straightforward granite cracks (e.g. Dome Rock; "The Tree Route").

Are cams really a must do for first time trad climbers. Im looking at building up a basic rack over time and on a pretty low budget and would like to know if cam's in general are worth the extra dough? Im looking right now at a balance between nuts and cams, but if i can cut costs i'd love to. Any help would be much appreciated.

The Edlinger is a solid "day at the crag" kind of rope. It's 35% dynamic feature allows it to catch falls quite well. I personally i have taken a couple of nasty whippers on mine and have found it to have a very soft catch. While not your light weight, super thin, water proof, super amazing rope, I have found the Edlinger to be a solid all arounder. And for such a price, who could ask for more?

I would like to know if being squished around in a backpack and getting soaked will have compromised the long term effectiveness of this harness. Basically, is it still safe to catch falls?

I have just purchased this harness and the fit seems to be reasonable. The waist is perfect but the legs are semi-loose. Is this still safe or should i go a size lower?
