      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!

How much fuel for MSR Dragonfly?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I was wondering how much fuel a climbing team should bring for Rainier. It would be 5 people for 4 nights. Making water to cook noodles, pasta, etc for 4 nights, plus drinking water and 4 mornings of oatmeal or dried eggs. Using an MSR Dragonfly. Any advice with this would be great.

You will want to have at least 2 stoves for five people if you are melting snow for water. Actually, two stoves for five people regardless of your water source. That said, two 22 oz bottles should cover it, per stove.

The old standby (NOLS formula) amount is 4oz per person per day in summer, more in winter. That equates to 80oz for you.

 

You can probably get by with less, but how much less depends on how careful you are with water melting, excessive boiling, and desired amount of hot drinks.
