I remember reading about a mountaineer who would bring hollowed out onions filled with mayonnaise. I get the high calories of the mayo, but why the onion?!

What about when you're climbing in the Vegas summer heat?

Watermelon sprinkled with salt!

When I was I kid, when we hit the ridiculously hot temps, hundred teens and up, my cravings led me to discover hot, salty, French fries dipped in soft serve vanilla ice cream from the Dairy Queen down the street.

Water, lightly sweetened, slightly salted, and some lemon or lime. (I predate sports drinks) Half thawed frozen fruit, if you have something watertight. Pickles can be good. Anything slurpy, not too sweet, and a bit salty.

But yeah, lots of water, including some to pour on your head and neck. Longish hair in a braid is great to soak down when you have to be out in it.

It gets hot here, but not so bad, and I don't miss it the slightest bit!

Jicama stands up better than apples when pre-cut. Lots of water content, pretty filling, and doesn't brown like apples. Sprinkle with some salt and lime for flavor and electrolytes. Andrew Yasso

Pickles & heat stable meat of choice (I like salami or jerky). Fruit. Pack any water containers as full of crushed ice as I can before I add water. JK-

I love the little baby food squeeze pouches to beat cramps (beware: baby food farts are real) Jon O'Brien

Apples can be salted to prevent browning:
