Secondly, why not bring a .6 grad nd? I hand hold mine because I got tired of dealing with the filter holder and I found that moving it up and down just a hair really blurs out the transition zone. Even when hand-holding a camera with faster shutters. I guess it'd be impractical during a climb though.
Thirdly, I am confused at your comment about setting exposure to -0.7ev. Is this because you shoot matrix metering? I tend to shoot with spot on the bright snow and open up 1-2 stops. Setting it down 0.7 or even at 0 would muddy-it out.

It should also be mentioned that all that DSLR tonnage is worthwhile if you plan on printing anything larger than, say, 30cm X 50cm. Otherwise, all of that photo detail is lost on LCD, plasma, CRT, or even Hi-Def LCD projector screen resolutions where screen resolutions are typically less than 100DPI.
I absolutely love a good picture just as much as anyone else, but a DSLR is wasted effort if all one does is look at photos on a laptop.

Now don't get me wrong, many people use P&S and get amazing images, and if I am trying to get super light on a trip, I may leave my DSLR at base camp, but I also think that someone who brings a DSLR (and knows how to use it) will consistently get much better images than someone who only takes a P&S.
