I spend too much time lurking on this site to not contribute... so hopefully this is useful. Concerning the dog, I have had my german shorthair over a number of passes in that area including Ruskie, Merrium, and Feather. She has been out for as long as 8 days and carries a pack with her food and doggie FAK (including leather booties). In sustained class 2, I take the pack off her so she can boulder hop and maintain her balance. When I hit class 3, it depends on the circumstance, but for going down Ruskie I rigged a harness with rope and lowered her down the 10 ft or so of rock face. I would bring rope just in case AND the dog could carry it.
