Definitely Shug, rocky locales like these are great for highlighting the advantages of hanging. I did speak with Tom about his ultralight bivy setup vs my hanging setup for that trip, and it turns out that our sleeping/shelter combined weights were pretty close. Tom had a super light ~4oz bivy, but with a full length inflatable POE pad that I'm guessing was around ~20oz. I had a WB SL 1.7 Traveler with whoopie/straps at just under 16oz and a Te-wa 2/3 underquilt at just under 13oz. Tom used a ~21oz JRB No Sniveler quilt inside his bivy vs my Golite Ultra 20 top quilt at ~19oz. It looks like in this case only a few oz penalty to get him off the ground. If I'd have brought my Grand Trunk Ultralight at 12oz w/suspension, it would have been just about a wash, and with my Nano 7 at ~8oz w/suspension even lighter with some sacrifice in room/comfort.
