William Roth's Bio

Being from NY most people think I grew up with concrete and cabs outside my window. In reality I grew up about a 1/2 hour from the Gunks. One of the best places to rock climb in the world. I have lived besides close to the Gunks, Keene Valley NY, Plymouth NH, Flagstaff AZ and of course Sandy UT. Living in Sandy means having the Wasatch Mts. as my back yard. Having a mountain playground so close has allowed me to rock climb a ton and get 100+ days a year snowboarding in.

The Mojo is much lighter than previous Voile models! It has a more powerful edge when in ski mode due to both sides of the "ski" having a caped edge. Also the binding pucks are much easier to set up now with the included puck tool. This tool will take hours off of getting your stance dialed in! It is good to size up slightly in split boards but don't go too large. 2 cm is usually enough. If you are not riding deep snow you may not need to size up at all.

Super Light and Really Durable!
4 5

I have used these socks on everything from 4000ft approaches up to Lone Peak Cirque and in the Tetons to quick hour trail runs. They are super comfortable with padding in the right place and they breathe great. They do a good job of wicking moisture away from your foot. Because of this they do stink a lot after 3 or more days of use but what did you expect after that? You do need to be careful when taking them off or putting them on a sweaty foot. Since they are so light you can rip the area above the heel pretty quickly. Other than that they have no durability issues. $25 for 3 pairs of long lasting, light socks is a great deal also!

I used these for over 100 days this past season and they did not rip at all like most other gloves do after repeated heavy use. They are waterproof and very warm for such a light glove. Also since they are so low profile the dexterity is awesome! I would use these down to about 5 degrees. Any colder and you can use them but they are not going to keep your hands as warm as they normally would.

This axe is super light but still really durable. The pick is also a little more aggressive than a traditional mountaineering axe so that you can use it almost like a technical tool on alpine climbs that involve snow travel, moderate alpine ice and mixed climbing. I usually use a 70cm axe but for this kind of use I size down to around a 60cm tool. Then you get the best of both worlds.

This rope is way more durable than ropes over a mm bigger. I have used it 4+ times a week for over 6 months now and it barely looks worn. The middle mark has lasted as well. I thought it would be gone by now but it is still there. The sheath is barely fuzzy. What a great rope! You can feel safe using it in a Gri Gri also. I have seen no problems using it in one.

This anchor system is great at the crag for cleaning anchors (especially for beginners) and for hanging out at belays on multi pitch routes (no more clove hitch). It is great when raping multi pitch routes since you don't have to have two slings to go to each bolt at the rap anchor, or trust just one bolt at the rap anchors, while setting up the rappel.

This boot is super stiff but unlike other stiff boots I have had it is not uncomfortable at all. I did have to use the included ankle pads to get the liner to fit on my right foot. Now that the pads are in there the liners fit like a glove. I did have to size down a 1/2 size to get the right fit. They were tight at first but now that the liners have packed out after around 15 days they are perfect.
