I was putting a new layer of waterproofing on my boots today and thinking about all the miles and adventure they’be been on. From crappy spring slop of the Cascades to the icy top of Mt. Rainier. They’ve seen it all. We’ll I guess they haven’t seen the REALLY bad stuff because I have a different pair of boots for winter climbs.
None the less, they’ve seen a lot. It’s funny how a piece of gear can mean so much on a climb. Simple things often create the biggest comforts. Like having a dry pair of socks a hot cup of shitty coffee or some old beat down boots.
