25 Pieces Of Kit To Record An Alpine Walk

Starting to think about my walking holiday in the Alps. I set off next Thursday, driving down to Geneva to join a group who will have arrived by plane. From there we go to Chamonix and walk the classic ‘Haute Route’ to Zermatt in Switzerland. More details here.

Not for the first time, I’ve laid out my kit, in this case the electronic / optical kit for no other reason that it makes for a cool photograph.The full list of 25 items is below…

The walk is ‘assisted’ (i.e. someone is driving our kit from place to place) so not everything will need to be carried every day. Have I missed anything? Any comments?
