As the biggest offering in Gregory's Alpinisto lineup, the Alpinisto 50 Backpack is the ideal gear hauler for those more gear-intensive ascents and overnight summit bids. The basic rucksack design is optimized for alpine climbing and is supported by Gregory's Fusion Flex suspension system to keep the pack comfortable when you're hauling heavy loads of food, gear, and rocks (hey, training is important) up the mountain. When saving weight and covering serious vert take precedence over comfort and support, the framesheet, single aluminum stay, top lid, and hip belt can all be removed from to trim an additional pound and a half from the pack's total weight, which adds up over long distances (you'll save of full ton of lifting over 1,300 steps, if that helps put things in perspective). Gregory rigged the front of the Alpinisto with a front crampon pocket, dual ice axe attachment points, and dual ski carry straps, so you'll easily be able to carry all the gear you need whether you're ice climbing, mountaineering, or ski touring. There's also zippered hydration pocket, rope straps and haul loops for climbing trips, and a sled-pull attachment on the hip belt to make it easy to tug gear behind you on long approaches and hut trips.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
