Fastpacking, also called Ultralight Backpacking, is a cross between Backpacking and Mountain Running. The defining characteristics of Fastpacking are: 1) Rapid, long-distance mountain travel, on foot, over multiple days, involving camps or bivouacs, and 2) Refined equipment choices and practiced skill sets that allow for both rapid movement and self-sufficiency in a remote mountain setting. Fastpackers share alpinists' "light and fast" attitude for moving in the mountains. Fastpackers use gear selection, ingenuity, and a streamlined approach as primary tools for maximizing speed and minimizing overall effort, without overly compromising safety or comfort.
Interested in what makes a good fastpacking trip? At Sage to Summit, we cruise around the Sierra looking for loops and point-to-point routes, to check out as many places as possible. Fastpacking is one of the quickest ways to check out the Sierra. At Sage to Summit we pioneer fastpacking trips and use our ultralight gear so we can get further - faster!
Sage to Summit also hand picks the gear that we believe works the best for ultralight mountain running, fastpacking, and alpine climbing. The gear is reviewed, scrutinized, and tested to make sure it meets the demands of our customers. Sage to Summit gives beta on Eastern Sierra mountain runs, mountain running gear, and mountain running races.
