It’s summer, and alpine rock climbing season is in full swing. I recently ran two trips back to back on Mt. Whitney’s East Face route for Sierra Mountaineering International. This included 8600 vertical feet of walking and about 2,000 feet of climbing in 3 days (since I had to approach and descend twice)! Perfect weather and great company made for fun trips.
Here is a picture and list of what I brought:
Rope: 60m, 9.2mm Mammut Infinity
Rack: B.D. 3,2,1,.75,.5, Aliens: red, grey, yellow, green, Set of B.D. Stoppers, Nut tool (single rack from big hands to fingers)
Draws: 8 shoulder length alpine draws, 2 double length draws
Harness: Ultralight Arctyrex, Belay device and 4 lockers
Shelter: B.D. Megalight tent
Plastic ground sheet
Neo air pad
30 degree sleeping bag
Stove: MSR Pocket Rocket, 4 oz. fuel
Titanium mug, spoon
First aid and repair kit
Toiletry kit: Toothbrush and paste, sunscreen, hand sanitizer
2 Gator aid water bottles
Trekking poles, for walking and setting up the shelter
All of this fits into my Cilo Gear 40l. Worksack
Total weight was about 40lbs, not bad for a guide pack and carrying extra stuff while including the rope and rack!
I hope this helps with your packing. See you in the mountains!
