REQ: Mt. Rainier - Packing Your Pack

REQ: Mt. Rainier - Packing Your Pack

Post by Mike Hollada » Thu, 23 May 2002 06:49:54

Hey All...

Looking to climb Rainier for the first time this September.  This will also
be my first high altitude adventure.  Just got my backpack itself this
afternoon and am looking for extra packing suggestions (other than what my
fitter told me).  I got a Dana Design "Glacier" pack.  We loaded it with
about 45 lbs. while fitting and I was quite surprised at how good it felt.
My question is basically...What are different setups or packing tips anyone
has for a short 2 day trip like I am doing?

I would prefer a mail response, however posting is ok.

Thanks in advance...
