Multisport Skills

Backpacking leads us to amazing places we otherwise wouldn’t be able to experience, and sometimes these special locations allow for off-trail activities. Enhance your next backpacking trip by trekking to a mountain lake for a day of backcountry fishing or by climbing a technical roped route to bag your next peak. Learn essential multisport skills with fishing, rock climbing and water sport tips and how-tos from the editors at Backpacker Magazine.
