Spring Sierra lists. heavy and light. on 04/15/2011 17:30:29 MDT Print View

OK

I am packing. GPS ready, LiIon batteries stocked up, food... I think I have what I need.

Planned trek is Tahoe to Mammoth, reassess from there and continue on SHR if I feel like it.

Resupply will be tricky. So the heavy pack could be good to carry extra days of food. Bear can is per regulations... I am way too careful about things like laws and rules...

Weights are approximate, My scale is in storage for some reason... I wish I had an in-between sized pack, but am leaving regardless in about 4 days.
So unless someone in Truckee or Tahoe has one for dirt cheap... Also looking for adjustable ski poles for cheap or free in Truckee.

I would give total weight for gear, skin out, etc... but ski gear, crampons are going on and off often. I am being fairly vague here. Not looking for gram nitpicking. That is better for summer weekend trips. I just want opinions.

I have two possible gear lists:

w = worn or carried
weight in oz

Just looking for whatever input people feel like giving.
Hybrid list. Vote your choice. I was in the South San Juans May 28 to early June of 09 with a list similar to the light one so I think I am OK with that comfort level. Though this would be snowier... I didn't have the extra quilt in the San Juans and I was OK with the Ultra 20.

Thanks!
San Gabe
