Light Duty? Have you ever...
« on: August 02, 2012, 11:28:57 pm »
Have you ever had a light duty situation?  You know what I'm saying.  Rigging lines to Camp 6 on the Nose.  Getting a tourist to carry your haulbag for you under the pretense of "experiencing the real thing"?  Had a helo drop you in for a back country wall?  Used a mule both for company and to carry your gear in the backcountry?

We(Flipper Phil & I) had a heli pickup & haul back to the Lodgepole warehouse of ALL our Angel Wings gear.
From Bearpaw Meadow.
That was sweet. We hiked out with our overnight kits. Like high rollers might.
Just how such a thing might occur must remain on the real 'in your face' circuit.
Kiss & tell? Uh, no.
Cheers!

I almost always try and get the first bolt in on a new project, that way I don't have to do the scary 2nd bolt.

Pack horses into Graves Lake to climb Mt. Hooker 2 years ago, doing the same thing next summer. No way I'm packing 500 lbs of gear for 6 people in 13 miles at 10,000ft!
I don't think it's gonna hold....BUT WE'RE GONNA USE IT ANYWAY!

Of course, my IAD Light Duty declaration is Freak Show. Fixing high, and not hauling.

I go light duty all the time.

I leave the portaledge and everything else in the car and then I push the captain.  It makes the hike down so much easier.

hahaha, yep, light duty!







Separately, I just found out Luke makes some "Light Duty" bolt kit bags.  Mucci needs one of those!  ;)

Light duty is not in HOI's vocabulary :o

Munge, I have an original bolt bag made my Luke, you have even used it.

I filled a partners haul bag with an extra 12er, light duty for sure.
