Essentials For Mountain Travel

Here is what Will Gadd carries at the minimum whenever he goes into the mountains:

"Below is my 'minimalist' mandatory gear; yes, fire starters and many other things are nice, but this is what I think I need to survive and/or start a rescue in almost any mountain range around the world. Also note that the pack itself has to be light; if your pack is over two pounds 'naked' then it needs to go on a diet; all of the below weighs less than three pounds total, so when I grab my pack for the day off the wall it should weigh less than 5 pounds before food, water, etc."

He also reviews a new product from Sterling called the Hollow Block.
