It’s important to do your homework before venturing out into the Sierra on a multi-day trek, especially when it comes to gear. Here is a quick video we shot while camping on the side of Mt. Whitney during one of our Trans-Sierra treks where we lay out our gear, piece by piece. Check it out to see what we take in our pack, and for tips on what you can do to lighten up your weight.
Chris first backpacked the Sierra to Mt. Whitney in the early 90s. He completed the John Muir Trail in 1997, and founded TSX Challenge in 2011 as a way to positively impact the lives of others through inspirational backpacking experiences.
