More new stuff, yep, these hobbies are expensive apparently. Though I think I am approaching finally having everything that I could possibly use, well, not possibly, but definitely in many, many, situations.
Anyway, here we have some new stuff. We have, one ice axe which really is as stab-y as it looks, straight for simple use.
We have one slightly silly looking helmet to protect my very expensive (cough cough student loans) head from falling things, a pair of climbing shoes (used twice so far!) which were SUPER on sale, which was the only reason I bough them, and the piece de resistance, new crampons.
They are beautiful and shiny, and fit my boots ever so awesomely, and I truly believe they are better than other crampons. They have an orange bottom to prevent snow from balling up under them, and I have a truly, truly awesome orange bag to shove them in so they don’t cut everything into pieces, because they truly are sharp as knives. Gotta love black diamond.
Anyway, I got these things last month, and unfortunately for my bank account also have some other new stuff to share, but now I feel very prepared when in the mountains :-).
