comment Theft and tent camping
You can use a very small travel key lock through the loops of your tent doors zippers to safeguard your sleeping bag(s) but I would suggest keeping any ID+cash on your person.

comment How can I avoid or lessen sweating in a rain jacket?
It is the ability of every material to breath that will change. My recommendation is Gore-Tex, I find that there's quite a big difference even over pertex quantum. Alternatively something with some sort of ventilation like pit zips.

comment Most Eco-Friendly way to Identify a Climbing Route
@ShemSeger I understand where you're coming from but where I am climbing is littered with beginners, taking wrong approaches causing damage to the area, climbing routes they have no reason to be one and people getting injured all because there's no structure or direction. This is greatly impacting our current access and may very well jeopardize future access!

comment Most Eco-Friendly way to Identify a Climbing Route
@ShemSeger The problem is when a 5.9 climber decks cause he missed the second clip on what was actually a 5.11d, or when you want to go for that redpoint attempt on your .12d but some .10a climber is hang dogging it cause he thought it looked like a .10 or better yet when they do find a half decent climb they throw a top rope up on the anchors and hog it cause they're too scared to climb another route cause they don't know the grades.

comment Red River Gorge Summer
I was there before in late may and it was pretty hot. I hear June/July/Aug is super hot but that shouldn't matter too much if you find shaded areas or are into super steep routes! Have Fun!

comment Is it possible to “pad” the shoulder straps of backpack?
@Luiz if that's not going to work you may just have to find some foam and get the duct tape out...You can pretty it up for your daughter with coloured tape and stickers so the pack doesn't look too bad...

comment What kind of car do I need to reach most hiking trailheads near Boulder Colorado, Rocky Mountain NP
Been there once, after a big snow fall. There are paved access roads for certain peaks and others were rocky off road. My very opinionated answer is "both" clearance and AWD which you will find in my make of choice SUBARU! When I was there the parking areas went something like this: Subaru, Subaru, Subaru, Jeep, Pick up truck, Subaru, Subaru, Subaru...My WRX has taken me everywhere I've ever wanted to go but there arw many other suitable models like the Forester or Outback...Goood Luck let us know what you end up with!

comment Ice Axes - Ice blade or Mix blade?
First, buy a file. Next modify the tip of the pick by removing the first and, if necessary second teeth. Next round out that area a little to form a birds beak which will serve you well dry tooling and will not hamper you on ice. Just ensure you keep your picks sharp! File file file!

comment How should I traverse fields with horses in?
@ShemSeger Your statement is incorrect as I almost bought a house in Northern Ontario(Private Property) but it had an Easement for the Bruce Trail.

comment Why are death percentages of death from trauma in an avalanche so different between USA, Europe, and Canada?
Western Canada sees many Avalanches with many injury reports and over ten deaths a year. I would go as far as saying they are a common occurrence and not "rare"...Here is a good resource: old.avalanche.ca/cac/library/incident-report-database/view
