Some tough stuff to drool over. www.alpineluddites.com/
The 70l looks nice!
Yes. Pity about the price tag though.
Yeah...but fck it....id buy it anyway.
No far king way.
An accident has occurred at Mt Arapiles this arvo ..Bears posted in Climbing Thread but thought we better also post in this thread also ...so some forum members will not miss this..
Seemed like he was in total control whilst styling it.
Yeah was pretty much a simple skidded free fall if you could break it down to that.
Big deal would be keeping you shite together.
I would be more so on the lines of wtf are you doing here.
Reminds me of the time I tele'd the Supertrail. Right on the limit.
Must be camera perspective, looks like upper Friday flat.
Pierra Menta on again.
Average day and terrain yesterday:
Bit of slacklining in @ecowain and our backyard this weekend at Mt Piddington
Pure madness. Are those tripod sticks UIAA rated ?
Handy ECT option.
As good as Vertical Limit for accurate technical know-how?
Full cred for resurrecting the swami belt.
Backwards none the less. I can't tell if his arms are thru the leg loops too.
Musta been Malana Cream in that chillum
No bolt gun.
Needs a chalk bag -------
Wow, Spaceface to I married a monster from the CIA (or that neighbourhood)?? when will it all end?
V happy, got a 2nd hand technical goretex windstopper Mountain Hardwear soft shell jkt on Gear Freak for $60. Local pickup too.
He's one of my flying friends.
Yeah, he said he was up with you on Saturday.
I've done that shit after i've smoke ice also.
What exactly was that?
Blingiest axes ever seen.
Vertical Limit was veritable alpine manual in comparison.
Splitter binder review
Very clever. I'd be a bit worried about you using it though whippet. With the amount of hot air coming out of you and all. Is it rated for that?
I do prefer the geothermal option!
Watch it all.
You must have the same Facebook feed as me TW, I was about to share. Gold, particularly the make shift racing boots about 13:00. The original backcountry.
@tele-whippet So I watched it to the end. Saw "Copper Mountain" in the credits.....
Can't believe David Andrews has stolen
I immediately thought of you when watching it
I sold it to him to finance my tele lifestyle.
Sell anything for the "lifestyle"
Not my Dachsteins, everything else is dispensable.
Wow! A couple of those names in the credits are still hanging around in the US Tele instruction world.
That race style would get a penalty at every gate under the current rules.
That's just free falling with trousers that are yellow outside and brown inside. Very 70s!
brings back memories ...karhu xcd's...scarpa one buckle..heel locators.... ....kazama mountain highs..voile plates...vic bein....role the knee ..telemark still the nicest pow turn...
I remember telemark racing in Niseko Japan in 1985/86 on Kazama telemark skis and Asolo boots (aaah cant remember the version) but it was leather boot and one of the first with a stiff upper and buckles. It was about then I first saw the home made versions with plastic uppers removed from downhill boots. I think you might have come to Japan about 1987, around that era? Same tooth picks for the powder.
Vic Bein gave up skiing not long after he came to Australia and apparently found god as an alternative to skiing! He changed a lot of thinking when he came out, such as parallel turns on tele skis with rat trap bindings.
Puts my little slackline weekend to shame
From little things big things grow.
I just hope I'm never there to witness him trying a 400m traverse. Happy to hear about it after.......
The weekend was our first time trying the slackline and we had a ball on it. I picked it up thinking it would be great to pull out on camping trips ✅ and also really help the balance for skiing ✅.
Graham, Kathu Extremes, Chouinard cables, leathers, Hokkaido pow 87.
Always sad to hear of the passing of a pioneer of outdoor pursuits.
