    Hi Diego, and welcome to the challenge!

    Many people find trekking poles very useful on long hikes like those in the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge. If you are a Costco member, they carry Cascade Mountain Tech carbon fiber trekking poles for a very good price. Once you get them, know how to adjust the height properly and use them correctly. We have some videos to help you over on our sister site SoCalHiker: Hiking with Trekking Poles.

    As for other things to carry, I recommend carrying the 10 Essentials.
