It was our first time there, so no scouting on a previous trip. We walked right past the site at first and Andrew noticed it. Then as we started getting closer to the exposed dance floor a couple minutes later we decided to turn around and head back to that spot.
The stove was a Whisperlite, but the pack was the Osprey Atmos 65, so a bit bigger than the Talon.
I tried a different sleeping system this time and used my 40* Montbell bag nested inside my 22* Katabatic quilt, with both inside a Six Moon Designs Meteor bivy and on top of an Exped DAM. I was in the Duomid. Unfortunately, I did a terrible job making sure my site was level and was sliding all over the place as I tried to get comfortable. I had a bit of trouble getting the 2 bags to nest well and ended up with the 40* unzipped and draped over my like a quilt with the 22* quilt on top. Eventually I ended up pressed against the side wall of the Duomid, so I opened the door and turned my setup 90 degress with my head was sticking out the door. I also had a balaclava, down hat and the hood of my R1 Hoody on my head. I was a little chilly, particularly the exposed part of my face got a little cold at times, but overall not too bad. And my lower body was quite toasty with micropuff pants layered over my cap 1 bottoms and softshell pants and down booties on my feet. Anway, next time I need to take a little extra time to make sure my site is level ;)
