I'll be doing a canyon r2r hike in May. Was supposed to be a R2R2R, but the old knee said nope! Anywho, I've still got a few things left to pick up.
1- Headlamp. Any favorites? I prefer something simple without 37 modes. I'm not looking to break the bank as I'll be buying 2 (wife) so that could play a small part maybe?? It'll be minimum running in the dark.
2- Poles. Any suggestions? I have a blown out knee that i was supposed to replace years ago but i'm stubborn. Do poles actually help with hills and is it worth the aggravation of having to hold them?
There'll be more, but i'll stop here for now.
Thanks for the help!!
