Title: Excalibur
Post by: Aaron McDonald on May 08, 2015, 11:53:34 am
Hello All,

I have been kind of lurking about the site for quite some time and want to ask a question. I am planning a trip up Excalibur and wanted to know if anyone has done it recently and what you would recommend for a rack?

The supertopo rack only calls for a single 10" cam, and I am really curious if that works or if that assumes that you can OW your way through section?  Maybe drag along some Big Bros or wood blocks to augment 6" cams?

The trouble with the Canadian Assassin's trip report is that he went up with Tom of Valley Giant fame, so they had more big cams then probably were mandatory.
