AMS Winter Projects

Ultrasonic!

One of the most important pieces of mountaineering gear is a reliable stove for melting water and cooking hot meals. By the end of an expedition your stomach may be trained to rumble at the sound of a whisperlite and the smell of white gas. Stoves see many hours of use in a summer season. Cleaning and maintaining them is an important winter and springtime job. This year AMS is using a new ultrasonic cleaner (the MSR deep cleaning recommendation) to maintain our stoves in top condition.
