Created to be the perfect pack for both carrying gear and for climbing with a pack, the Multi-Pitch 20 uses a canvas/Kevlar fabric for durability. A mesh side pocket carries climbing shoes or a layer easily and then stows away for streamlining while climbing.

Carry a rope over the top on the hike up, and then get rid of the shoulder straps and hip belt. Use the attached haul points when you need to trail the pack behind you.
