THIS!! :lol:

I'd much rather drop a bottle than take a 2500' slide to the rocks. Lanyards are your friend on a climb like this. Heck, I'm even planning on lanyarding my contacts in :-D

I can see the headlines now.....

"Man gets light headed from blowing his water back into his bladder and slides 2000' to his death. Good news though, the rescue time sent to retrieve his body were able to drink his water that had melted while he lay on the rocks absorbing the warm sunshine" #-o

I used a camelback bladder inside my pack with a neophrene sleeve for the hose on a late march hike up pikes peak. It was not that cold (20's) but was extremely windy. There wasnt even the slightest hint of the water freezing. It worked great for hours and hours.
