Impossible UL Denali List? on 08/23/2007 17:46:11 MDT Print View

Can it be that we have not yet received a Denali UL gear list because such a list is not realistic? Unless a person pre-acclimatizes by climbing surrounding peaks over a period of many days, then scoots up Denali in a couple of days, that person will need as much food and fuel as any other strong climber. Food and fuel have a certain irreducible minimum weight, making it impossible to cut the normal pack weight by a huge percentage. If those two climbers claiming to have an UL pack aren’t con artists, is it too harsh to tell them to produce their super-creative and ultra-innovative gear list?

Hi Robert,

Don't blame Matt and Agnes for our slowness! I happen to have their gearlist in my hot sweaty hands - and it's my fault it hasn't published yet. Hold tight...

OK, sorry if I was too hard on them.
