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.

Bug Bivy under the Tarp. In my case I use the Yama Mountain Gear Bug Shelter 1.0 under my Gossamer Gear SpinnTwinn.

Conejos Peak Loop in Southern Colorado
Sharing some photos I have put up from a mild 23 mile loop in the South San Juan Wilderness of Colorado. This area is remote and stunning in every way. Saw virtually no one else on Labor Day week...

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...
