Hello, I will be making my way up the MT and the chute early 5/28 after an overnight at TC.
Do most of you leave your backpack/tent at Trail Camp when headed to the summit? I see photos of both people w/ and w/out their backpacks from TC to summit. Obviously not carrying any unnecessary gear for this stretch seems really appealing. But what do you do if you are a SOLO hiker and carrying gear/water/ice axe/poles/snacks to summit??
Any light weight solutions?
Anyone ever come back to TC only to find their gear has been stolen?
sorry, minuscule details
