Support for Hiking Climb


#1

Chris,

I’ll be hiking my first fourteener this weekend. Due to the nature of the route, difficulty, etc., we anticipate approximately seven hours of continuous exertion. In addition to food, and probably a Finibar or two, would you recommend Plazma or MAG-10 for liquid support? We’ll be starting early, so effectively fasted, and although I may regret this I’ll still be squatting 24 hours prior, per my Training split.

Thanks!

Having done it a few times, SWF and Finibars. Plazma us great, but found it overkill. MAG-10 when you get home.

4 SWF is what I recommend. We had water stops on the way, so empty bottles was a God send.

Do yourself a favour and eat a Finibars before leaving.

Thanks JFG. I don’t keep any SWF around the house but I do have Plazma. Sounds like it’ll do in a pinch.
