Nick, since you live in SoCal you'll find that you have plenty of training ground in the local mountains to "grow" with the weather. As soon as the snow begins to accumulate - get out there in it with the basics (crampons, sturdy boots, trekking pole/ice axe depending on terrain, warm clothing other than cotton). Join a Meetup group, there are so many in this area. You will meet plenty of folks with suggestions and options for you to test drive.

That would probably not add up to much more than 45 lbs, which is not too bad... I buy the cheaper heavier gear, so my pack is more like 50-55 lbs for a multi-day trip. Buying a lighter weight rope, tent, and sleeping bag are the main weight savers.

#1 Learn to write English. You live in a English speaking country. I know this because I dated a girl in college who moved to New Zealand

#2 My multi day technical pack weighs between 30 and 35 pounds. I know what I'm talking about, no one can even understand you.

#3 :lol:

It's funny because even if you did have a good point to make, nobody would know because you either don't take the time to type properly so it can be easily read and understood, or you weren't taught English like EB mentioned... Who seems better to take advice over the internet from? A punk who cnt spll? Or a member who can type properly, be helpful, and who I believe has plenty of experience. If you want to be a punk on this site, fine with me, that's the beauty of this website. But don't try to give aspiring mountaineers the idea that a space-blanket sort of equipment is all the warmth you need to climb Mt. Shasta when you 1.Don't know what you're talking about or 2.Put off the vibe that you don't know what you're talking about because, frankly, you're a dumbass...

And btw, that spaceblanket-like thing with heat pays weights 2 kg, thats ~4.4 pounds. Explain what exactly is in your pack please. Preferably in language the general population can understand.

In my bag for multi day trips for mod routes is,

1. nuts,cams.hexs as much range as you can 5 or 6 alpine quick draws made out of 60cm dineema sling, 4m dineema sling,3-4 screw gates and some wire gate snap links all light weight, 23 pittons
2.1 snow stake 2-4 ice screws
3.cooker with one of those small bottles and a small cup size pot
4 food,frezdry for dinner salami and cheese for lunch protien bars for breaky,lollies
5.gore-tex pants jaket,thermals none extra,socks 1 or 2 pairs light warm gloves +gore-tex mits warm hat.warm mid layer
6.60meters of 8.9mm rope
7.crampons+ice axe's
8. space bag bivy bag
9. light weight first aid kit and repair kit
10, light weight harness and FULL shanked boots/mostly wearing these things, as use a light weight 25L OR pack some times strap crampons onto harness wearing helmit+headtorch

A little better with the comprehensibility. That sounds like a day pack with emergency bivy gear. Have you slept with the space bag and bivy in cold weather? I'd imagine you would freeze in anything but good weather conditions and moderate temperatures. Unless you wear the harness with all the rock/snow/ice pro on it, you don't stand a chance of getting that in a 25L pack. I'm interested to know what you've climbed and when and in what conditions you've actually bivied with this setup.

I apologize for my previous use of the F bomb. I was drunk at the time, not that it makes it ok.
