This is the gear list from for my 2019 Cotopaxi Climbing trip. When we climbed Mount Ranier we were fortunate and were able to rent just about everything we needed. This was possible because many of the guiding companies are headquartered in the northwest and they have closets full of rental gear just waiting to be used.
Since this climb is in Ecuador, I think just about the only rentable items are crampons and ice axes, so this means I will need to have everything with me before flying overseas. In a way this is good. It will give me a chance to test and get familiar with all of the gear before starting the onthe trip.
It is a pretty long list so I am not sure the best way to break it up.
Currently I am thinking I will have this long list then if I go into more research and detail I will break that out into its own blog post and then link to it.
This will be a work in progress and I am open to any suggestions and thoughts!
