Thanks all. I am going out this weekend. Doing South Rim on Saturday, 7/20. I'll post a water report after.Planning to be light but was thinking about water:3L Camelback3 x 2L platypus2 20oz Gatorade1 32oz Nalgene How does that sound?
Yeah that's a ton of water; 22 pounds of water? Seriously?If I was doing what you are doing I'd have about 8, maybe less; and I always carry a light filter, the MSR TrailShot
I concur about not coming down Laguna Meadows for any reason unless you can make it back to the Basin by 10a. That black sand and exposure had me stumbling to my car on my last trip.Where is Townsend Peak, btw?

I was trying to read back on old threads to get an idea about summer hiking needs and thought it was too much. I have a light filter so I'll drop to the 3L and 1 x 2L plus the gatorades.
