***GEAR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR Torres del Paine ***

I'll be hitting Torres del Paine at the end of the month and wanted to know who has been there and what you would change about your gear selection looking back on your hike of "The W."

Caucasus: Tetnuld, Gestola and Shota Rustaveli

First of all, this is a great site and community you've all got here. I've ended up at this peak many times over the years, by different routes! I'm pleased to finally be posting here.
