Here's a relevant question that's been in the WAY back of my mind for a few years: how do you deal with a stove in a place like the Alpine Graden. I mean, you need to be able to camp/cook effectively in modest winds e.g. 40 mph if you're going to tackle the traverse. So does cooking in the tent absolutely require a hanging cartridge stove? OK, maybe the hanging is not so essential, but I have always had white gas stoves that need to be primed, and even a 20 mph wind down in the trees has made the stove a PITA to light and run. I couldn't imagine trying to use my stove (currently a MSR Whisperlite) in the open, windscreen or no. The one stormy trip we tried to use it inside we almost burned the vestibule off my new tent
