/ Hiding & protection for a axe and crampons
I have decided to leave my axe and crampons (walking style, nothing flash) in Chamonix. It is the only place I use them.
I have found a good place near the campsite I normally stay at but it will be exposed to the environment, though not buried. Just wondered if anyone has done this and any recommendations on protecting them?
I was thinking about coating them in grease then in a plastic bin liner. They are not stainless.
Let me know the spot and I will have a think as to what you need......
Come back next year.
Make friends with a BMG or somebody who has an apartment out there and ask if you can keep them in their kit room? Ask the campsite owner nicely and bung them 20 euros. Or just bring them home, harden up and get out in the British winter.
"Storing" them somewhere outside is a nice way of losing £150 worth of kit and having to replace it at Chamonix prices next year.
