18 lbs of water and a sub-2 lb radio. What more do you need?

Toss in some food, a bit of sleeping kit, and that’s about it. Villager Peak, W6/CT-096, is a remote 5,760′ summit with the nearest trailhead about 7 miles away at 900′ elevation.

I had activated Villager Peak before for SOTA, but a nearby summit, guarded by a steep descent and climb from the Villager peak ridge, remained unactivated. My goal for this trip was to activate that summit.

Hope you enjoy coming along for the adventure.
