Myself, I am a later-middle aged (46 going on 47), fulltime scientist, I admit that I'm a weekend warrior (actually my words are gumbie), but when I am hiking into crags at the Creek, my load is pretty heavy, upwords on 9 of each size (except in hands since that is like a running belay), 2 ropes, water, dSLR + tripod, always forget food. 2 pairs of shoes.

Needing a lot of cams is the norm, especially as you go past the .11's. . On Ruby's Cafe, I take 8 0.4 BD C4's, and a couple of 0.3 BD C4's. Learning to Fly is about the same except only 1 0.3 BD C4 and 7-8 BD C4's. On the Optimator its just a quite of few cams from 0.3 to 0.75 BD C4's. Its just a fact of life at the Creek.

Whats the problem with the load. The approaches are pretty mellow in the big picture, even to the Wall.
