comment Is it realistic to teach yourself rock climbing?
@BarrySW19 I don't know. It's just what they said in the movie. Maybe they also build their chamber because you can train there more efficiently.

comment Inexpensive ways to learn cross-country skiing
I don't say everybody likes to go in a group and that everybody searches "fun" in the mountains. Therefore I wrote "one reason ... might be". I think there is nothing wrong to recommend avalanche training in general if you are starting with ski tours. By definition you do this in a remote place (without prepared runway). At least I know it like that. And of course there might be tours on flat terrain where an avalanche is unlikely. If one is planning to do those kind of tours solely, then go for it and skip the "annoying" avalanche course...

comment When rain jackets wear out, do they soak through?
Washing the jacket might help because the sweat and dirt clog the membrane and breath-ability is reduced therefore.
