Yeah light and fast seems like the way to go when you have it dialed but this was when was just starting multi-pitch experiences and since I'm not that experienced with trad I still like to be prepared but I will also probably trend towards the light and fast aspect as I get more comfortable with it. Thanks for the advice it is appreciated. Dec 30, 2008

im glad folks are learning not to be pricks to each other... thats what i love about the proj... keeping it positive and learning from each other, so nice... i have made the same transition to light and fast climbing... i normally bring water clipped to the harness and a bar in my pocket... i would note that this only works if you are indeed light and FAST it wont work too well for beginner trad teams who might be light an SLOW for a while and get caught in the rain or dehidrated or what not...

i have watched a team on Recompense all day while me and a partner go to the top and down a few times, between our climbs we can drop a layer or grab another at the car while grabbing a bite to eat but they need it all with them...

so thats my two cents... sorry its a bit long... Dec 29, 2008

Hey any advice is good advice, and never really thought about it that way but it think why I carry that back pack is that it is also a camelback, and I hate tying stuff around my waist it bothers me more than a backpack, its kind of an issue I have (I know I am weird), and we did more than just that route we continued up black lung and upper refuse, but hey thanks for the compliment on the pic haha Dec 29, 2008
