How do I rig an expedition sled
Yes, X (or cross) the two poles as they come up to attach (to waist belt on pack.)
This will let you ski, make turns, and have sled follow (track) behind you like a dream.
Tie cord on back of sled to pull out when traversing a slope so that person behind you can hold said cord, helping to keep sled from going down hill...
Google "ski pulk" or sled.. — Dec 29, 2015
honestly, for denali you just tie it all up and drag it behind you.
i saw all kinds of different riggings up there, none seemed to work better than the others.
on denali the sleds are provided by the air taxis, don't expect anything to nice or fancy.
pvc poles are a waste of time, i wouldn't bother.
if you are on snowshoes, and if you are, i pity you, going downhill the person behind you on the rope will control your sled via a prussik on the glacier rope.
the path up there on denali is pretty well worn from everyone dragging their sleds, just get it in the track and get going...it will flip over dozens of times no matter what you do.
if you want it to be best just have a nice streamline duffel that holds all your stuff well. its more about having everything packed nice and tight rather than rigging it a certain way. — Dec 29, 2015
