Buff/Neck Gaiter One item for face protection is required. Our primary recommendation is the Buff. A neck gaiter or balaclava is also acceptable.

Warm Hat A warm winter hat of fleece or wool is a great tool for staying warm and is an easy way to regulate temperature on the go. When you warm up, pull off your hat and stick it in a pocket. When the winds pick up and the temperature drops, slip your hat back on without stopping.

Buff or Neck Gaiter A Buff or light neck gaiter protects the face from wind, cold and dust on the mountain. They are also useful for sun protection throughout the climb.

Ball Cap or Sun Hat

A ball cap or sun hat is useful for shielding your face from the sun. A sun specific hat has the added advantage of also protecting the back of your neck.
