Re: How light can I reasonably get in a solo shelter?
A Hexamid Solo-Plus with a beak and no netting is around 7 oz. You could save quite a bit on your sleeping bag, more than on your shelter. A Katabatic Alsek would save you 8 ounces. In my opini...

Re: BMWO 2014 Swimming and Hobbling
Bravo Adam and Tanner! Thanks for the pictures and the report. It makes me shudder to think about breaking a tib/fib out there this time of year. Care to elaborate on your two-man river crossing te...

Re: BMWO

Re: Young lakes/Conness trip memorial weekend

Re: 4 days in the emigrant wilderness

Re: Water treatment
I stopped treating my water after the first day out of sheer laziness and I didn't get sick. Lots of snowmelt and runoff that time of year to dilute the bad stuff.

Re: An Introduction to Simple Fly Fishing
I enjoyed this, both for the content and for seeing an article written by Chouinard here. Will probably buy the book now.

Re: Shepherds Crest/Mt Conness in Yosemite
Day three should be no problem as long as you are in reasonably good shape. Many people climb technical routes on Conness from Roosevelt in a day - I've done it and it's OK. As an altern...

Re: Extra gear you bring for alpine climbing
More double length slings than usual. Usually 4-5 depending on the route. Alpine rock routes tend to wander a lot and also tend to have lots of opportunities for slung blocks and horns. The extra s...

I had the same experience as everyone else here. Joe got me a customized piece of gear on time and was very responsive to my questions and requests. Can't do much better than that.

The Ohm is my go-to pack for trips that don't require a bear can. You can fit a Bearikade in it, but it's not very comfortable because it bulges into your back. I put a plastic frame sheet fro...
