Trying to push the limits of my various setups, I stuffed 11lbs of gear and 11lbs of food & water into a 25L pack for an overnight trip on Mt. Baldy via Ice House Canyon trail. This is the same gear that I’ve used year-round in different conditions. Total distance was 30 miles with over 10,700′ of elevation gain.
