Would this pack do alright for some weekend mountaineering? 3-4 days max with no technical climbing (just crampons, ice axe, etc)

This pack would do alright for some basic mountaineering. A word of caution though: the curved back and frame of this pack place the majority of the weight a few extra inches away from your natural center of balance and can make scrambling and moving around objects a bit awkward. I'm sure that with practice, you can get used to this and make the necessary adjustments. It will however, feel a bit bigger and less snug to your back than other backpacks. Other than that, its a great pack and caries a heavy load quite well. Hope this helps!
