comment I never adjust for true north. Is this bad practice?
It matters if you are travelling long distances on a bearing over featureless terrain, such as sailing a ship across the ocean, or travelling across a desert.

comment What’s the difference between a B and a T ice axe?
Disagree that B's are lighter, almost all technical climbing axes are T rated and are almost all lighter than general mountaineering axes, which make up most B rated axes.

comment How do I tie a double fisherman's knot?
@Mr.Wizard - Thanks for the update, interesting reading. Its well worth mentioning that an overhand used this way needs to be properly tightened and tied with a long tail (half a meter).
