"I decided to go to Stonewall Peak to practice setting up and sleeping overnight on my portaledge. Stonewall Peak is great for this because the summit offers a quick "bail out" option, as is standard when learning to set these things up and using them for the first few times.
First you start with something simple like a tree, then work your way up to large things before you use it on a climb that actually requires one."

Strong storms are part of the equation at this campspot in Capitol Reef National Park.
We can’t think of a better way to kick off the New Year than at a campspot like this, high above Lauchernalp.
If you don’t mind the wintry wind chills, you’re pretty much guaranteed a campspot far away from any traffic and noise as you’re halfway up to the summit of Mt. Shasta.
