ACCESSORY CORD

Thirty (30) feet of 6mm accessory cord is required. Please contact the Gear Department with any questions related to cord lengths you already own.

 

ICE AXE

A general mountaineering ice axe. Size according to height; under 5'2'' use a 50 cm axe, 5'3'' to 5'5'' use a 55 cm axe, 5'6'' to 5'9'' use a 60 cm axe, 5'10'' to 6'0'' use a 65 cm axe, above 6'0'' use a 70 cm axe. If you already have and prefer to use a waist leash, you are welcome to bring it to your gear check.

CRAMPON

 

General mountaineering crampons. We recommend modern steel 12-point crampons with anti-balling plates. We do notrecommend 10-point, aluminum, or single-piece rigid crampons. The traction offered by a 12-point crampon is superior to that of a 10-point; steel crampons stand up to the rigors of potential time spent walking on rock in crampons; one-piece crampons often break or do not fit modern boots well.

CLIMBING HARNESS PLUS TWO LOCKING CARABINERS

A fully adjustable alpine climbing harness with gear loops. Fully separating leg loops & waistbelt are required. Bring two locking carabiners in addition to the harness, which will be used only with the harness.

 

Two non-locking, lightweight D-shaped wiregate carabiners. Wiregate carabiners are stronger, lighter, and easier to use than older round-gate carabiners.

BELAY DEVICE

Modern tube-style belay device. Avoid super-specialized belay devices which cannot accept a wide variety of rope diameters.

TREKKING POLES

Collapsible skiing/trekking poles with snow baskets. Three-section varieties are preferred.

ASCENDER

One right or left-handed ascender (pick your dominant hand to choose which style ascender). This item must be in good condition.

FOOTWEAR

WOOL OR SYNTHETIC SOCKS

Three pairs of medium to heavy hiking socks. These must fit over your liner socks if you plan to wear liner socks.

WOOL SOCKS

GAITERS

Full-sized waterproof gaiters that must fit snugly over your mountaineering boots. Short trekking gaiters do not offer sufficient protection.

 

Double boots designed for mountaineering. Plastic-shelled models are sufficient, but modern non-plastic boots are more comfortable and are highly recommended. Single boots of any kind- boots without a removable liner- will not be sufficient.

LIGHT HIKING BOOTS OR TREKKING SHOES

For any approaches across dry trail. Light weight, high comfort, plenty of room in the toe box, and good support should be stressed here.

TECHNICAL CLOTHING

SHORT UNDERWEAR

Two to three pairs. Synthetic or wool fabrics only; bring a comfortable athletic style for any top and bottom underwear.

BASELAYER BOTTOM

Non-cotton baselayer bottoms that should fit snugly without constriction.

BASELAYER TOP

One to two long-sleeved baselayer tops. Baselayers must be constructed of a non-cotton material such as merino wool or polyester. Note that light-colored, hooded baselayers are strongly recommended for sun protection, and are worn by most guides.

 

A midweight, form-fitting, lightweight fleece layer for use over baselayers. Hoods are optional but recommended.

ELL PANTS

Stretchy, comfortable, non-insulated softshell pants that should fit comfortably with or without your baselayer bottoms. Please note that "zip-off"-style trekking pants are too light to be considered softshell pants.

SOFTSHELL JACKET

This breathable but wind-and-weather resistant jacket is a key part of a mountaineering layering system. We recommend a hooded model. This layer must fit well over your midlayer top and baselayer top.

HARDSHELL PANTS

Non-insulated, fully waterproof shell pants that must fit comfortably over your baselayer bottoms and softshell pants. Full-length separating size zippers are strongly preferred; shorter side zippers are allowed if you can put on and take off your pants without removing your footwear.

A non-insulated, fully waterproof shell jacket with a hood. Must fit comfortably over your baselayer, midlayer, and softshell. Helmet-compatible hoods are required.

INSULATED DOWN PARKA

This jacket or parka should be heavily insulated with high-quality down fill. We recommend an overall parka weight between 1.5 and 2.5 pounds. For warmth, a hood is required. Down sweaters or light puffy jackets will not be sufficient.

INSULATED SYNTHETIC PANTS

A synthetic insulated pant with full-length separating side zips. Ski pants are typically not appropriate for this layer.

 

LIGHTWEIGHT LINER GLOVES

Very lightweight wool or synthetic liner gloves that offer a snug, comfortable fit. Lighter colors absorb less sunlight while still offering UV protection. Black or dark-color gloves are also acceptable.

SOFTSHELL GLOVES

Midweight, lightly insulated gloves for use when mittens are too warm and liner gloves are not warm enough. Leather-palm construction is always ideal for the sake of durability.

 

INSULATED SHELL GLOVES

One pair of warm shell gloves with insulated removable liners. Excellent for use when conditions are too cold for softshell gloves, but too warm for expedition mittens. We recommend models with a durable leather palm.

EXPEDITION MITTENS

Expedition-rated mittens with an insulated removable liner. Please be sure this mitten is the warmest model available by any manufacturer.
