Light to carry and quick and easy to put up, even in a gale, our North Face tent
stood up to an extraordinary storm at 6,000m, while other tents were ripped and mangled.
I sat cross legged in my North Face tent
, my legs partially covered by a North Face 40-degrees-below-zero sleeping bag, formerly top-of-the-line gear out of the Netherlands.
North Face tents
are my favorite, but if there are more than two in your party, the Outfitter line from Cabela's works great.
Needless to say, they had to get by without the benefit of North Face tents
, Lowe Alpine fleeces, Vitamin E oil, rescue teams or several days of being trained how to dig toilets in the snow.
The scenery was breathtaking and after three hours, we reached Camp One and set up our shelters, which ranged from one-man hoochies made out of ground sheets and bungee cord, to three-man North Face tents
and everything in between.
