Last year I decided to change my traditional hiking gear for ultralight gear. I’ve been always a big fan of ultralight hiking but my circumstances hadn’t allowed me to make the switch. Why is that? Firstly, I already had all the hiking gear I needed and switiching to ultralight was unacceptable for my environmentalist soul.
It was the morning of 24th December when I arrived at the car park, ready for a snowy climb. I was the first weirdo there, all the other sane Christmas hikers were still in their warm beds, which was a smart idea since my thermometer in the car was showing -12 degrees Celcius.
