The Best Stove: JetBoil

The best stove system for the mountains these days is the 1.5L Jetboil pot rigged with the hanging kit. It is the fastest, lightest and most efficient. It has accompanied me on every trip from my early - too early in the end of March - trip to the Ruth in 2004 to my one day attempt on K2 in 2007 to Kwangde this year. Check it out. The photo below is one that Billy took in 2005 on the south face of K2 during one of the nights we spent on the wall pushing a new route, only to be turned back by strong winds. Super comfy and warm too!
