/ Winter Grade I/II Protection
I've got a set of nuts, few slings etc that I'm happy to use when there's rock about, but what about those big snowy gullies like the Aladdins Colouir or Black Spout?
Assuming you're not soloing it and have decided to place protection.....
Always carry a warthog.
Good advice. They can be useful but are always fun to bash in!
I am not familiar with warthogs, is this a product name?
Thanks very much
