Ultimate hiking and mountaineering packing list
In preparing for my 401km slightly extended MASSIV expedition in August 2022, I found what to me appeared as a gaping void of proper planning tools for such expeditions.
I have my glacier and avalanche preparation planner, which is great for safely preparing for avalanche and glacier terrain, and some generic packing lists from a plethora of stores and trekking associations, but found nothing for mountaineering and hiking the mountains for 2-3 weeks or more.
<blockquote>Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable - Dwight D. Eisenhower</blockquote>
The Excel file below contains all the gear, clothes and equipment I took for my three-week MASSIV expedition, sorted and summarised by category, easily expandable and also ready for use.
It also contains the complete MASSIV itinerary with distances, ascents, mobile reception, power availability, cost and travel time for each section to name a few things.
If you find this useful, please let me know.
