"Would you wear this on a Sierra trip?"
Piper writes, essentially, "Let me tell you about several times that I flirted with hypothermia. Happens to me on a regular basis. So, yeah, take the minimal rain gear, that's what I'd...

"Would you wear this on a Sierra trip?"

"Would you wear this on a Sierra trip?"
Ben: you say that you have a fairly light Rab anorak: the Demand? that's what I carry. It did indeed save my butt more than once. Again, it's, what, 7 ounces heavier than the cuben jacket? ...

"Would you wear this on a Sierra trip?"

"Would you wear this on a Sierra trip?"

"SC Governor is So Wrong!"

"JMT speed record attempt"
Ralph: are you thinking of acclimating at all before you begin? Spend a few days at 10,00-11,00 feet, then start? Heck, put it off and spend a two weeks...it makes a difference.
