We will provide most of the necessary equipment needed for camping and any technical aspect of the trip. You will need to bring the following items listed below. Please keep in mind that the weather can change rapidly. Wool and synthetic blends are preferred over cotton clothing. Bring clothes that allow you to remove and add layers as temperature and weather changes. Storage space is limited, so please pack with this in mind.
