On a climbing trip to Torres del Paine National Park Hiking there are several things that a mountain climber has to prepare. Some of them are about travel management, physical and mental preparation before ascent, and equally important is the preparation of mountain climbing equipment. With proper preparation our journey is expected to proceed as planned and avoid danger.
In this article we will discuss some basic equipment that should be brought by a mountain climber when going to adventure in the wild as when to Torres del Paine National Park Hiking. Basically the climbing equipment of the mountain itself is flexible, in the sense that it could have to be taken and could not have to be taken depending on where, how long, and with whom you climb.
Carrier Bag / Rucksack
Carrier is very important for a mountain climber. The selection of the right carrier can make our journey more comfortable. Try to choose the appropriate carrier with our body and size fit with whatever we bring also tested the quality (branded). For example in this case I chose the carrier semicarrier brand of consina that cost is also not too expensive and also suitable for my body size.
When going up the mountain, of course things that must be taken and should not be forgotten one of them is a jacket. Mountain jacket has many types / types and easy to look for technology can be adjusted with our budget follows a lot of jacket technology on the market and have to ungulan each wind-braker, water-proof, windproof, windblock, windstopper. Its function must have been in the know, to protect our bodies from the cold.
Just bring enough. This is just in case if the clothes we wear wet or dirty. Changes here include clothes (shirts), pants, and underwear.
Weather on the mountain is very uncertain comrades, especially after the global worming as it is today. The rain can go down anytime even during the dry season. Bring a raincoat in my opinion is a right decision.
Hat, Gloves, Masks:
Hats can be useful to protect the head from the sun, insect stings, and minimize our heads hit the tree / twig. Gloves are useful to withstand colds and bandanas are useful for filtering the air we breathe.
Its function must have been in the know, to protect the legs from thorns, sharp pebbles, snake bites dn prevent from the cold. Use specially designed shoes for mountain climbing.
Serves as a backup or backup when your shoes is wet or something.
Try to bring a tent that can accommodate all members of the team, not to be less let alone less. If the capacity of the tent is too large, the weight of the tent will also increase.
In addition to the jacket, sleeping bag will be a mainstay equipment to repel the cold that attacks our bodies.
Cookware consists of stoves and fuels, nesting, water containers, etc. Please note, if possible, bring alternatives to the cooking tools you carry. If you choose a portable gas stove, I suggest you also carry paraffin or other fuels. If at any time the stove we bring is damaged we do not have to worry because we already have a replacement.
Plates, spoons, glasses, and so forth.
Try to bring enough logistics and if necessary bring more. We definitely do not want to climb the mountain in a state of stomach growling is not it? What should be brought? As an illustration I used to bring rice, instant noodles, jelly, bread, milk, tea, coffee, etc. All I mentioned above is the menu of a fugitive climber like me, if you have more funds, please bring more nutritious logistics than I example above.
Headlamp or Flashlight, along with a spare battery
Multipurpose Folding Knife
Too Much of the Luggage
Being away from home does have concerns about the lack of equipment. While on the mountain no one sells or that lends. This is the reason for a climber carrying too many luggage. Bringing more clothes in anticipation on the mountain is something undesirable like wet clothes and more. A lot of supplies like picnics and fear of hunger. Better to bring efficient and practical equipment. Do not carry two items with the same function as carrying spare shoes or other. Customize your needs and plans. Surely when you decide the climb you already know for how long and what activities will be done so you can design supplies well. Bringing too much stuff will make it difficult for you to carry everything in a climbing position. You will get tired quickly during the uphill walk and this is a big problem at the beginning of the climb.
Trivial With Eating and Drinking
The climbing euphoria is inevitable. The exhausting process of tracing the track uphill and difficult to make a pride when it was above. As a result, you forget about eating and drinking because the hunger has been restrained by the sense of awe and safe has reached the object of climbing. Not eating or drinking because feeling hungry is a mistake. You still need food intake because on the mountain it is cold. The body still needs to consume food to stay stable even if you do not feel hungry. So eat on time and in accordance with the portion, you are also not good to overeat because feeling energy drained away after a heavy climb.
Ignoring the Weather
When dealing with nature, you must really understand how nature works. Weather is predictable but can sometimes run beyond expectations. You should pay attention to the weather while climbing. This is useful for more mature preparations, such as lockers or waterproof jackets that need to be prepared during the climb during the rainy season. Remember also when climbing usually climbing path will be slippery and humid. It will be heavier than usual.
So, this is tips for Torres del Paine National Park Hiking. Enjoy!
