Since I am often trusting my life to my gear on these adventures, I choose every piece of gear carefully. I spend countless hours researching, reading blogs and trip reports, talking to guides and climbers to find best, safest, lightest, most reliable gear money can buy. I will often buy several different brands of an item and test them myself to determine which does the job to my satisfaction. I never buy the cheapest, always the best performing.
So I am currently working on a gear guide with the items I have chosen and field tested and found to be up to the task so you can benefit from my efforts.
