The long and steep approach to the high alpine granite you plan to climb requires a pack that will not just get your gear there, but will keep your back and shoulders in good enough shape to actually climb the route once you arrive. Black Diamond designed its Mission 35 Backpack for days like these by incorporating its Active suspension technology. Active suspension consists of Black Diamond's ReActive hip belt and SwingArm shoulder straps, which work in concert to keep your body moving naturally and comfortably, while also keeping the load of the pack balanced and evenly distributed, so you stay more comfortable longer.The Mission 35 is fairly minimalist in design, but it maintains all of the necessary components that are needed whether you're climbing summery cliffs or mid-winter ice. The top lid can be removed to shave some serious weight from the pack, and the main compartment has a drawcord skirt closure to keep gear dry from snow and light summer rains. The strippable design means the hip belt and framesheet can be removed from the pack when you're wearing it on the wall, and the hydration-compatible sleeve allows you to throw in a reservoir when you don't feel like messing with space-consuming water bottles.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
