It's simple math really. The less weight you have on your back, the easier the alpine ascent. And you can always go lighter with the Ortovox Peak Light 32L Backpack. Its 32L capacity and slim 2lb weight are already appealing to minimalist-minded mountaineers, but you can remove the top lid, waist belt, and even the supportive wire frame to shed even more weight down to a single pound. Ortovox makes nearly every single product with a bit of wool in it, and the Peak Light is no exception. Ortovox placed Swiss Wool virtually everywhere that would touch your body to stay comfortably dry under sweaty, icy, snowy situations. The rest of the back panel, as well as the shoulder straps and waist belt, have a bit of cushioning to keep you comfy as you make your ascent. Despite its weight-conscious, minimalist-minded design, the Peak Light still boasts a plethora of features to add convenience to any climbing or skiing adventure, like external attachments for climbing ropes, skis, helmets, axes, and trekking poles to leave more room inside the pack for layers, food, water, a map, and more.

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.
