We did an eight day Sierra Crossing with a starting load of 44lbs, including food and water. No crampons/axe/rope/pro, but I would expect that to send it to 50lbs max, presuming a group of three splitting gear.

Make sure you have plenty of beer to wash down the roids. :wink:

Half barrel was a 1/3 full. Appox. 85 sloshing lbs.

Keep the weight low and tight.
