Check List

Climbing Gear

  • Ice Axe: Bring a light weight axe with a pick that will stick easily in hard glacier ice. Attach a light weight wrist leash that is usable for climbing steeper terrain.
  •  Crampons: These must be sharp and must fit your boot perfectly.
  • Harness: Make sure the buckle is easy for you to thread in cold conditions! Gear loops will be useful for this trip as well as adjustable leg loops.
  • Helmet: Be sure you can comfortably fit a warm hat underneath.
  • Hardware: Bring 3 locking and 4 lightweight regular carabiners. It is helpful if at least one of the locking carabiners has a "key gate", like the Petzl Attaché. Bring one handled ascender and one Petzl Tibloc for ascending the fixed rope. You will need rigging material--two sewn 48" nylon slings and 10' of 8 mm perlon should be sufficient. Also include one small 5 mm prussik loop (about 4 feet of cord tied with a double fisherman's knot) for a rappel backup. For rappelling the Black Diamond ATC Guide is good since it can handle ropes from 7.7mm to 11mm. A Figure 8 is an old standby and works on a variety of ropes and also icy ropes. While it twists the ropes more, it is quite foolproof. You might consider both, in case you drop one of them and lose it. Our guide have Ice tool, Ice screws, Carabineers, Locking carabineers, Short-5- millimeter accessory cords, Slings.

Others Accessories

  • Headlamp: Bring a good LED headlamp with 2 sets of lithium batteries for cold conditions.
  • Water Bottles: 2 wide mouth plastic water bottles with insulated covers. A small Thermos bottle is great for cold mornings. Bring a pee bottle too.
  • Water purification: Iodine tablets (Potable Aqua or similar) or iodine crystals (Polar Pure). One bottle of Potable Aqua (enough to treat 25 liters) should be more than sufficient.
  • Utensils: Bring an insulated mug with a lid, a decent sized bowl, spoon, pocket knife and lighter.
  • Backpack: Climbing Backpack: Medium size internal frame pack (60 liter capacity). Look for a pack which is comfortable to carry, very durable, as light as is reasonable and one which has a minimum number of bells and whistles.
  • Sleeping Bag: Bring a sleeping bag comfortable to -20. Down is lighter and much more compressible. Be sure to bring a compression stuff sack. Keep in mind that many of your nights will be much warmer than -20, especially on the trek in to base camp.
  • Sleeping Mats: A stuff sack helps prevent punctures.

Footwear

  • Double Climbing Boots with expedition liners. Make sure your crampons can be adjusted to fit them!
  • Approach boots. Which will work on the trek and approach to Camp 1, and even up to Camp 2 if conditions warrant.

Climbing Clothing

  • Insulated Parka: Heavyweight insulated expedition parka with hood.

  • Mid Layers: Fleece or Soft Shell layering pieces that work well with the rest of your clothing. A Soft Shell jacket and an expedition weight long john top will work well.
  • Climbing Pants: Look for construction that provides freedom of movement and/or stretch materials. Fabric should be a breathable synthetic that preferably holds up to abrasion.
  • Base Layers: - 2 synthetic tops and 1 bottom. Zip neck tops are the way to go.
  • Mittens: Fleece mittens with an over mitten. Nothing competes with a mitten for warmth when the going got tough.
  • Ski Gloves: A warm insulated glove with leather palm will be worn a lot of the time.
  • Light Gloves: Polypropylene or fleece. Leather palms handle the fixed line better.
  • Leather gloves or good abrasion resistant climbing glove for the rock sections.
  • Stocking Hat: Wool or fleece stocking hat with ear protection.
  • Neck Gaiter and/or a Buff (highly recommended).
  • Basebalhat and Bandana.

Personal Accessories

  • Eyewear: Bring good sunglasses with side protection. For contact lens wearers, ski goggles with light color lenses (for use at night) might be useful in windy conditions. The ski goggles are essential for all climbers in really stormy conditions and can serve as an emergency backup for broken or lost sunglasses.
  • Vision correction: Bring extra prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses if you wear them. Lens solutions are not widely available in Nepal, bring enough for the duration.
  • Wrist Watch: With alarm and night light. An altimeter watch is useful.
  • First Aid: Hand sanitizer (Purell), moleskin or Compede, athletic tape, aspirin (some climbers take a baby aspirin every day up high) and/or ibuprofen / acetaminophen, Imodium, Band-Aids, antacid, insect repellant, ear plugs, and two rolls of toilet paper in quart Ziploc bags (we will have a supply at Base Camp), small towel, soap/shampoo.

  • Skin Care: Sun block lotion (at least #30 protection factor -- have at least one smaller tube (1 oz) that can fit in your pocket) and lip salve. Put your lip protection on a string and hang it from your neck. That way you'll use it. It also works great for your nose.
  • Garbage Bags: 2 or 3 large plastic bags make great liners for your pack in wet weather.
  • Personal Snack Food: The food is great on the trek but you might enjoy a few snacks (not more than 5 pounds) from home and also some drink mixes if you like these to add to your water bottle (let the iodine have 30 minutes contact time before adding). Summit climbers should bring some high altitude snacks they prefer for hard days.
  • MP3 Player and Books: Plan on sharing books with the Base Camp Library.
  • Pee Bottle
  • Chemical Hand Warmers 

Trekking Gear

  • Trekking Poles: Poles come in handy for balance and easing impact to your knees. Get collapsible poles that can attach to your backpack and fit into your duffel.
  • Backpack: You may choose to bring a smaller "daypack" for your airline travel carry on, and this can be used on the trek if you want to carry a smaller (35 liter or so), light trekking pack. You need a pack big enough for your clothes, water, camera, food, etc during the day.
  • Pack Cover: Waterproof rain cover for your trekking pack.
  • Trekking Clothes: Light hiking pants and / or hiking shorts for warm weather down low- NOT cotton. Shirts for hiking on nice days (t-shirts OK, quick-drying synthetic fabric is better.) Don't overdo your trekking clothes. A pair of shorts, long pants and a couple of shirts will do. Some pair of Socks, Underpants/panties/Bra, Belt, Skirt, one set Sport sandals and Trousers, You can hand wash them during the trek as needed.
  • Lightweight Approach Boots: Find a pair that fits and log some miles in them before your trip. A low cut shoe is adequate, but some hikers will prefer more ankle support.
  • Sleeping Bag: Climbers will make do with their expedition bag; trekkers only can get by with a lighter bag rated to -10.
  • Sleeping Pad or Thermarest-one light one is sufficient, you will be provided a thick open cell foam "trekking mattress" (recommend only for camping trek).

Travel Items

  • Duffel Bags: We normally pack all our equipment in two large duffel bags. Make sure they are well labeled with indelible ink as well as a travel tag. The duffels go on the trek/climb with you and will be carried by porters and yaks. Expect for them to get wet and muddy, so rugged, waterproof duffels are good. Bags with wheels are nice for the airport, but the porters and yaks don't like to carry them, so don't bring wheeled bags (or at least not two of them). You will also store some travel clothes at the hotel in Kathmandu while trekking, so a small additional bag with a lock might be handy. Bring 5 large plastic garbage bags to pack gear inside duffels to protect gear from rain.
  • Daypack: A smaller rucksack makes a great carry-on bag for your flight and is useful during the trek.
  • Travel Wallet: Some type of secure travel wallet is a must. Remember a pen for travel documents.
