Backcountry Dog Etiquette

During a recent ski tour to Table Mountain in the Mount Baker backcountry, three friends and I rescued a lost dog. It was an hour before sunset on a cold December afternoon and there were no other people in sight when we spotted the shorthaired mutt searching for her owners. As the shivering, disoriented animal limped higher up the mountain, away from the parking lot, it became clear that something was wrong. One member of our group, Kirsten, attracted the timid dog with an avocado sandwich. Kirsten phoned the number we found on the dog’s identification tags and was able to get in touch with the owner, who was waiting in the cozy Heather Meadows lodge, about a 30-minute hike from our location.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Tough to retract
These poles are very sturdy once fully extended. I've used them through the Narrows of Zion and up 14ers in CO. At 180 lbs, I can easily lean my body weight on these and feel confident they won't accidentally retract or snap on me. However, after much abuse and getting pounded by boulders in creeks, the poles have had a tendency to not retract very easily. The poles tend to get stuck half way through the closing process and a lot of effort has to be put in to pounding them again a hard surface to get the final few pegs to retract all the way. Other than this, the poles are solid and are highly recommended.
