Re: [pct-l] Basic Questions

Ice Axe:
You will almost always need an Ice Axe From Kennedy Meadows to Sonora Pass.
You will sometimes need an axe through the Southern Region and you will
sometimes need an axe al the way to Canada {like this year}

Bear Canister
If you plan to clear the Sierra in early season, that is be north of Lake
Tahoe by the fourth of July [in normal years] you can probably get by
hanging your food IF you use bear boxs through Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP and
skip [don't camp with food in] the bear alley in Yosemite [Donahue Pass to
Tolumne Canyon]

My Sunoto is no heavier than a watch/compass
