Required Equipment

Required Equipment

  • 10 Essentials (headlamp is critical)
  • NW Forest Pass or equivalent (if driving)
  • 2 liters of water for drinking
  • 15-25% of your body weight in your pack (use discretion. Heavier is better for actually preparing you for climbs, however only 15% in under 2 hours is required. Use gallon water jugs so you can dump the water out and save your knees on the way down)
