My Locale Colorado
About Me My primary pursuits are mountaineering (hiking with the goal of a summit) but I am beginning to re-kindle my love of Backpacking. In particular I have become a big fan of the Ultralight approach and love this website. I seem to be in a perpetual state of shelter/sleep system evaluation. My current setup for shelter is a GG SpinnTwinn with YMG Bug Bivy 1.0 (summer) or Katabatic Bristlecone Bivy(colder). Sleep system is Katabatic Chisos 40 degree quilt with Neoair short.

Backpack for overnight climbing trips
Living in Colorado I have a number of relatively short (20ish mile) loops that involve some scrambling up and over peaks and continuing a loop meaning I need to carry everything while climbing. I&...

Ron Bell response
Ron Bell provided the perfect response, "The InnerNet is not sized to connect directly to the SoloMid corners. The Mid can be pitched high or low so that distance from inner to outer can va...

Re: re: Best month to climb Colorado peaks?
+1 on Gary's comments. I prefer colder over wetter any day. September is hands down the best month for climbing. October can be a very nice month if we get a couple of weeks of indian summer...

Katabatic Gear Bristlecone (Regular Length, Wide Width)
I have had the Bristlecone Bivy for a year and really appreciate the side zipper for ease of entry/exit. The mesh is just right for breathability and views. The stake out loops are nice when you wan...
