This is aimed towards CO 11,000 feet on up. Mostly carrying the gear up to a "basecamp" to try some Fourteeners. I will end up carrying the pack over a few high passes.
Water is usually available so I carry just the 1 liter Platy, with one in reserve. I will wear a Silkweight top and carry the bottoms in the pack. (Usually what I sleep in). The Spraymaster Jacket is kinda heavy but it moves very well over difficult terrain. (Maybe overkill on the clothing but I have been miserable on certain occasons and don't like it)
My food weight is about 4 pounds. High calorie Snickers, brownies and such. Cheaper than energy bars and much tastier, although hardly what I would call organic. The only food missing is some fresh bagels that I will grab when I get closer to the trail.
I am debating regarding the conditions if they require an ice axe.
