Harness. If you are going on a mountain hiking trip then another important gear you will need is a harness. You can wear a harness just like a pair of pants and it will rest on your hips. While hiking you will need to use the harness for attaching yourself to the belay device or the rope and for carrying gear. A harness will act as a safety net for you while you are hiking over a mountain and make sure you wear it tightly enough so that if you end up flipped upside down you do not slip out of it.
We entered the Sierra Nevada on June 11 in a very heavy snow year so we spent about a month hiking through snow sometimes only getting down below snow level in the evening to camp. I had very little experience hiking in deep snow and no experience navigating when the trail was covered with snow most of the day. Mostly we did it with map and compass but we did use a GPS some to pinpoint the trail location and to confirm which was the right pass a few times. I had crampons at the beginning of the Sierras but soon lost them off the back of my pack before I ever used them. One thing we didn‘t have to worry about was water. We got spoiled by only having to carry a liter or two of water. We often drank directly from springs and the snow melt streams without bothering to treat the water.
When I found out that it went from Mexico to Canada I thought that would be something fun to do someday. In the years that followed I joined an adventure racing club and the outdoor activities progressed to longer harder and more frequent. In the summer of 2002 I went to Peru on a two-week hiking mission trip. That turned into a three-year stint the following year. In 2005 knowing that my term would be up in January of 2006 I started making plans to through-hike the PCT. The timing all came together no job no mortgage or other expenses and some money in the bank from selling my house when I went to Peru.
