No weights as I don't really care; experienced folks can probably give a pretty good guess.

A few notes:

-I cook over a small fire, usually only for dinner.
-The minimal shelter (no bivy) is used because I'm pretty sure I'll be able to camp in alcoves if necessary.
-I like a bombproof pack for canyon hiking.
-Drybags are idiotproof, especially if I fall in the river while crossing.

I forgot to add the camera I'll bring, a cheapo digital.

I looked at your gear list, and without any weights, there isn't much I can offer.

QUESTIONS:

What's the 7mm rope for?

And the Zip ties?

And 5 pounds of food for under 3 days? That's too much.

When are you going? Will you need to carry 6 liters of water?

Rope is for potential hauling of the pack in a few scrambling sections.

I will need to carry that much water.

Zipties can be handy for fixing stuff.

I'm really going to try to cut down on food, I always seem to bring too many snacks. I'll take a bit out at the last minute.

Edited to reflect the "fair weather" option if temps are nice and/or rain seems very unlikely.


Did a rough estimate of weight, came to 25.6 lbs with 6 liters of water, which sounds about right.
