In June I'm going to Golden Trout Camp workshop. It's at about 10,000 feet 
and I 
hear that toward the end of the week day hikes go up to 13,000 feet and are 
about 6mi long.

I'd really like to take a medium format outfit, so I've put together a kit 
take and am practicing using it as well as starting hikes with it to build 
strength. Here is from the first hike:

For those interested, the kit contains:
Hassy Flexbody kit
120/4 Macro
2Xe Tele-extender
32 Extension Tube
45PM Prism Finder
Phase P45+ w/ 2 batteries
Bay 60 Polarizing Filter
Lee Filters with holder
Cables, cards, cleaning cloth, etc.
Gitzo GT0541 with Archatec Pano head.
I still have to add lunch, water, pancho and something for warmth. I'm 
concerned about this much weight; but I'm not getting any younger and better 
this while I can.
Suggestions for bulking up, other than steroids/clear much appreciated :-)
