In the new 16 Week Big Mountain Training Plan 2.0, there is Muscular Endurance Weighted Climb starting Week 10.
3 years ago (during the pre-Covid era!), I used the 16 week training plan to successfully summit a non-technical 6,300 m peak in the Himalaya. I came back to it this year to train for another similar climb. I remember previously the last 4 weeks had 3-4 hour hilly terrain hikes with 20% bw in a pack. In the current version I see no mention of carrying a pack on these hikes. Can you explain if this is correct and I if I should or should not carry a pack?
