G3 Alpinist High Traction Climbing Skin

It's always a good rule of thumb to keep your angles low when skinning to save on energy and increase travel efficiency, but sometimes the nature of the terrain demands a steep, switchbacked skintrack. In situations like these, you'll be glad you have the G3 Alpinist High Traction Climbing skins, because their aggressive Premium Plush nylon has 10-20% more traction than G3's other Alpinist Skins, making them well-suited for steep skintracks and backcountry areas that tend see a lot of traffic. Like all of G3's Alpinist skins, the High Tractions got a few features re-worked to make them that much more capable in the backcountry. Their tail clip can now be adjusted a full 16cm for more length adjustability, while their hydrophobic treatment helps prevent icing from occurring out there.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
