Mallorca - Tramuntana Traverse
The following checklist should help you with your packing. As a general rule, you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment to a minimum.
You must bring the following items:
Trainers / sneakers or sandals
Technical walking socks (2 or 3 pairs)
Trekking trousers / pants
Lightweight waterproof overtrousers / rain-pants
Thermal baselayer shirts (1 short sleeve, 1 long sleeve)
T-shirts and/or casual shirts
Fleece jacket or warm jumper
Lightweight waterproof jacket
Lightweight thermal gloves
Sun protection (including for lips)
Eyewear - sunglasses
Headtorch / head lamp and batteries
Washbag and toiletries
Daypack c. 40 litres / 2400 cu in
Water bottles x 2 (1 Litre / Quart)
Sheet sleeping bag (for the 2 nights in refuges)
Basic First Aid Kit including: Antiseptic cream, throat lozenges, diarrhoea treatment (Imodium), painkillers, plasters (band-aids) and blister treatment, insect repellent, and re-hydration salts (Dioralite).
The following items are optional:
Camera and batteries
Earplugs (particularly if you are not the one snoring!)
For the 2 nights that the group stays in refuges (Day 2 and Day 4) you will not have access to your trek bags. Effectively, this means that on 4 of the days you will be carrying your sheet sleeping bag and minimal overnight essentials.
