    As Bob suggests, use a large dry bag to have water in the hut and filter from the bag. You can get water out of Chimney Pond. Bring plenty of beer in cans.

    I've been using the Nepal's for several years now for both winter hiking and ice climbing. They're a great boot. I do wear chemical warmers in them when the temps are in single digits or below.
