The job of a guide.
Guides generally have to go farther, faster, and set the skintrack for their clients. Your crew usually takes turns setting the skintrack, but you'd still like to beat them to the top and leave the best line down the mountain, and Plum's Guide M Stopper Alpine Touring Binding is just the tool for the job. The binding has a minimalist design that only adds two pounds to your touring setup, and there are two heel elevators for when your over caffeinated touring partner starts setting the track too steep.
