Grabbed a down quilt while at Sierra Trading Post tonight in response to reading the book. I'm beyond winter Ridge traverses at this point, but I get in about 6-7 winter hikes, so it's a worthy addition to my emergency bivy.

I'm glad you enjoyed the book—definitely read his other book and article, they're both as good or better than The Last Traverse.

Finally, I've connected with and am working with the author to arrange a virtual visit to my classroom—hopefully in the next couple weeks.
