Paracord would be for auxiliary uses like lashing down a shelter, making a sling/brace, making a snare (squirrel kabobs), simple things. Please by no means am I advocating using it as rope replacement. Something else to consider when layering clothing and such, if day temps make it to the 60’s and overnight lows are less than 30’s; think about the sweat factor. Everyone sweats differently, a couple of Dec ago, I was with some guys doing Monkey Business it was at the end of Dec and the day high was at least mid 30’s. I was sweating good, when that sun went down it got cold fast. Advance knowledge of the physicality of the canyon, my exertion level, I prepped with a change of clothes to make sure my core temp didn’t drop. So after the Kelsey exit, I changed my top layers and beanies so that I could manage the trek back to the car, overnight lows were estimated in the single digits. On this same trip I did manage to get 1 foot wet, wearing wool socks; I was able to quickly ring out my sock and put it back on and keep those digits warm. I’m a fan of wool for that reason. I switched beanies, rang out my wool beanie, put that in my pack and it was frozen crunchy by time we made it to the car. I only mention that because temps drop and you aren’t exerting energy, that days sweat will chill you fast beyond your control.
