      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

0-degree bag on West Ridge of Hunter

Recommended Posts

What are the people's thoughts on using a 0-degree bag for the West Ridge of Hunter? High camp will probably be below 12k'. I'll also have the Mountain Hardwear Chugach pants and Feathered Friends Icefall parka to compliment the bag. It is a Western Mountaineering Kodiak bag.

I used a 15 degree bag on Hunter, but that was early June. I wore MH Chugach pants and a big down parka layered over the top of the bag. It worked out well. I think a 0 degree bag should be fine.

I used a 0F bag and a 30F bag for a Denali trip last year and was fine. I used the 0F bag up to 14k on the West Butt and the 30F bag at both 17k and for 3 days on the Cassin. I also had the option to use the lighter bag as a blanket if it was really cold.

 

Probably doesn't make sense but we did the trip a bit different than most. Along with 2 bags for most people we had 7 tents, 5 stoves, and 1200#s of gear for our 6 person team. The hardest part was getting it all up to 14. Above that the livin' was easy. Have a great trip!
