Always take one or two extra layers with you especially if it is cold. You can put on or take off layers according to how hard you are hiking and it’s always good to have some warm fleece to put on when you stop for your breaks. Keep your head dry by using the adjustable hood on your jacket or a wide brimmed waterproof breathable hat. Keep your feet dry and warm by wearing a good pair of waterproof hiking boots and hiking socks. Make sure that your boots have “gusseted” tongues to keep the water out of your boots if you step in a puddle.
Either way you can rent the gear you need. Renting is truly the no hassles way of going about getting gear. Most rental companies have extra clean and dependable gear. You can schedule your trip in advance and they will send the equipment to you. Or you can pick up the gear, whichever is convenient to you. Renting offers you the option to buy after you have tried gear on a real outdoor trip and most rentals provide group discounts, depending on the size. They want to make it as easy as possible to get you outfitted and get you outside! After taking a look at rental packages you will see the no hassle way of going camping or backpacking. Get outside and enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors.
After our leisurely lunch, we had one last challenge. As climbers always remind each other, the climb is only half done when you reach the top. After double-checking the anchor, I clipped Mason and myself to the rope and we rappelled down the cliff. The first step is the hardest as you trust your anchor and step out over the edge of the cliff. Mason and I held hands as we leaned back into the rope. Once the rope had our weight, it was easy. Down we went, taking our time to enjoy the feeling of total safety on the vertical face of the mountain. At the bottom, we celebrated again, and then it was time to pack the gear and head home.
