I'm trying to put together a list for 2 months of traveling interspersed with 7 or 8 overnight backpacking trips. I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around all the gear considerations. Any help would be appreciated. Here's a quick rundown.

Trip: Winter peak bagging 9 holy peaks in China, with overnight camping at each. Mtns. from 250 meters to 3000 meters in height. Mostly on trail stuff with a lot of stone steps. Temps from about 20 F. to 70 F. Plane and train travel and stops in big cities like Shanghai, but no home stops.
