You weren't breaking any rules unless you planned on camping within proximity 
of Glen Aulin or over 9600 feet.  Otherwise the counter balance method is 
perfectly legal in that section.

Unless someone can point out otherwise, the only section of PCT I can find 
where it's deemed neccesary to carry a bear canister is between Tully Hole and 
Donuhue Pass.  I don't have my databook handy, but I'm fairly sure I hiked 
through that area without camping.
