Trying to figure out the best way to carry things on a long bouldering approach, when my buddy and I both will have crash pads. We're going to be camping, there's no water in the area, so we will have a moderate amount of stuff though we're going as minimal as possible.

Landings are very rocky in this area so we want two pads else one guy could carry a big pack in traditional manner.

Is about all you can do is shove stuff inside each pad, and wear a smaller pack reversed in front kangaroo style? Or has anyone come up with anything more clever.

Concerned wearing a pack reversed over a long distance is going to be super uncomfortable and impractical.

cheers

Carrying bouldering pads over a short distance is uncomfortable. The best thing to do is get a pad that has a carrying system that is actually comfortable.
