leaving behind pack & bearcan for side-trips?
- Hi Everyone,
I'll be hiking the entire route N-S starting in late August.
I plan on doing many of the side-trips listed in Wenk's book.
I do not relish the idea of carrying my 40-50 lb pack off trail and up steep talus slopes.
Would I be crazy to hide my pack and bearcan off trail (separately of course), and summit these peaks with just a light daypack/fannypack containing only water, snacks, and emergency supplies?
