Reader Gear Tester Appreciation week-plus continues, and today we’re featuring Ryan Dax from Placerville, CA. In addition to possessing seemingly every piece of gear for every outdoor sport known to man (rock climbing, mountain biking, backpacking, mountaineering, ice climbing, telemark skiing, snowboarding…the list goes on), Dax shows off a bit of his skills with an ice climb in East Vail, CO. Watch out:

Whoah…that’s a whole lotta gear.
