Trekking poles (50/50 chance I'd bring these)


What I'll wear:

Socks/ underwear....of course
Convertible Pants
Synthetic t-shirt
Synthetic baseball hat (keeps the sweat out of my eyes)

Clothes in the bag:
Softshell pants (provides insulation and minimal rain protection)
Softshell jacket (insulation and wind protection)
Light rain jacket
Synthetic long-sleeve shirt (probably mid-weight capilene or something with a little more wind protection)
Light hat and gloves

If it looks like rain I'd probably add another layer to the bottom to keep me dry.

Miscellaneous:
Very compact headlamp
Sunglasses
Mirror, whistle, lighter, small multi-purpose tool
Very small first aid kit
Camera
Altimeter watch
Map (I usually leave the guidebook in the car, but I know the area)

I'm sure I forgot something essential, but that's generally what I take into the mountains in the summer. Everybody has their own recipe though, so what works for me might not work for you.
Thank you!
