There are numerous 1000' routes where all that is needed is a standard rack of cams and nuts. You're approaching your problem from the wrong direction - you shouldn't be trying to figure out how to carry more gear; you should be improving your leading ability so that you don't need so much. Realistically, it sounds like you're not ready for the routes you are currently contemplating.

Good advise up thread on leaving the pack on the dirt..... usually. If you do need one, Cilogear Packs makes a flat out amazing product called a "Hauly". It hauls a shit ton of crap, is designed to be a great backpack (I just used it for a multi-day backpacking trip into the Wallows and at one time had all mys stuff in it AND THEN strapped my wifes pack to the top of it as well. So for packing crap into like the Wind River Range, Tetons, Wallowas, 7 devils etc etc, this is the total schizz. But you can hide the backpack straps in less than 2 shakes and haul it like a haul bag as well. For big walls, it acts like a great sub bag as well, better than the Black Diamond Subby on it's best day. But it costs more at $275. Worth every penny IMO, and it will outlive most of us. The material isn't that thick (and heavy) haulbag material but is thick burly Cordura.

Then instead of a big pack and a small haul bag, you'll have one that is excellent at both. I was using it to haul my crap out doing new routes. In 2 years of sharp rock it still looks good.
