comment How do I get my fingers and toes warm before rock climbing at cold temperatures?
I'd also suggest a buff as opposed to a scarf, more versatile and less likely to get caught in a belay device...My friend got her hair stuck in an ATC once, it was not a pretty sight, would hate to see someone get choked by a scarf in ATC.

comment What to do with a wet dog while camping
My dog never comes inside the tent in fear of him chewing the down sleeping bag in the middle of the night or something of that nature. he usually gets carabinered to the tow hook of my car on a 30ft lead or same setup with a couple cams, ice screws or some sort of anchor. He went for a swim once in a lake and when he got back on the beach he rolled around and was covered in sand, I had to put him back in the water haha

comment Is listening to music on earphones while hiking safe enough?
I almost stepped on a rattlesnake once when I took a step off the path and I assure you they definitely sound like a hiss and not a rattle!

comment How can I recuperate between two long walks
@njzk2 DO NOT STATIC STRETCH during the walk at rest points. The static stretch will only contract the muscles more. Stay loose by doing dynamic leg stretches! Also the evening after day one do not do the classic 15-30s stretch, hold each static stretch for three minutes deepening the strecth at the one and two min mark. you'll wake up the next day probably feeling better than the morning of day one haha Let us know how it goes!

comment Skis or Snowshoes for Colorado
Snowshoes and alpine skis...Snowshoe the approach then once above the treeline strap on the skis with skins and skin your way to the summit then blast down on your freshly waxed skis and if you have time go back up and down then home then eat then sleep. A good day :)

@OddDeer With this breed i believe you would be ok but I would put a big emphasis on the success being attributed to training.

comment Are there any electrically heated winter gloves?
@AllanL Sorry if my comment doesn't address the fact that you may need these for medical reasons such as poor circulation...
