Hey, something I've been curious to find out is what you do if you are doing a 1 or 2 day climb and sleeping on a portaledge and you just happen to have to take a dump?

Poop into a bag (I've used ziplock ones in the past).

Put it into your "poop tube". PVC pipe with a screw on lid that you haul up with your other gear.

Throw it out when you get down from the wall.

A large, empty peanutbutter jar with some kitty littler in it works well too.

I certainly wouldn't take any glass up a wall, it's way too heavy and fragile.

Get some Wag Bags, open them, squat, release, shake and bake, tie it up, put it in your Waste Case for proper disposal later.

Don't do this unless you buy gallon jars of PB or have very small BM's. Tongue

Mark, I know, like me, you're old-school and all that, but I really think she used "jar" generically - PB comes in plastic "jars" these days. Even mean Kartessa wouldn't suggest carrying glass jars on a wall. At least I don't think she would....

You could fill a large jar in 1 or 2 days? I know you're full of shit Chad, but let's be serious.

I take it that in Canada you have big PB jars? Cuz most here in the states are around 14-16 oz. and yeah I could fill one of those twice a day.

You have a big PB jar.

Here in the states most PB jars are about 16 oz or .45 kilos.

The problem isn't the overall volume but the size of the opening. If you haven't noticed, most of us here are have pretty big assholes.
Cool

This one should be big enough...both opening AND volume, even for Chad. Wink

So the consensus, and thus definitive, answer seems to be using a large plastic peanut butter jar as a poop depository. And to rehearse the act of going on a portaledge, you need to practice the act while in the front of an El Camino. If your ledge has a rain fly, you will also need to throw a blanket over your head.

I keep re-reading the post title and ask myself... "Who would want to crap in their portaledge?"

I'd rather crap into a bag and drop it in my peanutbutter jar. Try getting shit out of the canvas after it's been sun-baked for a couple of days.

Wouldn't that be taking a crap onto a portaledge?

And you have experience doing this?
Is it OK if I decide now to not ever do a wall with you?

Very true. But you take a crap in your house. Doesn't mean you poo on the stairs. Tongue
