I just made a video on how to make a home-made poop tube. This is my favorite option because it is light, easy to make, fast and cheap.

Here is the full article on Poop Tubes and the Bivy in my How to Big Wall Climb Project

My poop tube is an old ProteinPowder jar. the opening is about 6 inches in diameter. Solid built. Tight, twist seal on the lid. Holds the smell really well.

To you EURO bag tossers out there....

I got hit with a bag while on the Nose in Aug 2003 by a team of Spaniards. Having your ropes covered in Euro poo while on a wall is no fun.

I got pissed off enough that I almost caught up to them. I went and looked for them at camp 4 later and some of thier buddies figured out by my questions who I was.

"you are the guy who was hit with the sh#t HA HA HA... that is really funny"

"no they aren't here anymore, they are out climbing"....

none of them would be a man and fess up and it wouldn't have right to return a paper plate full of the favor onto a randon tent of spaniards.

Please understand, the rules about packing out your waste isn't just another annoying park service regulation like out of bounds bivying and food storage for bears...This rule is a part of the social compact amoungst wall climbers. Please be a good embassador when you visit our country and our walls.

Jace here bumping everybody's favorite topic with a question!

How long would you make a 4" wide poop tube. 4 days/3 nights and two guys? Mike's post up top makes it sound like 3' is the way to go but that seems a little large. Better have the space and not need it than need it and not have it?

How do you build a poop toob?

Well first you have to have the right consistency of poo. Then you roll it out like a pie crust with a bakery roller and roll that into a toob. Easy peezy cheezy. Now did you see where Mythbusters proved you can polish a turd?

I was once stopped at the register while purchasing the components to build a poop tube. The manager was called over. I was interrogated with the assumption that I was building some type of pipe bomb. They pretty much decided I was building some type of bomb without ever asking me what I was assembling. I will never forget the expression on the employes face when I told them what I was doing.

If you or someone you know is in the medical field they can get their hands on some suction canister solidifier. Turns liquids to solids and sanitizes it in the process. Poop then add some in the poop tube - actually peeing in the tube some helps. Turns everything into a solid, sanitized mass. Your poop tube / container should be disposable.

One very important step in building a poop tube: Fill tube with poop.


Otherwise it's just a big empty pipe.

It was at Mcguckins in Boulder too. I was really surprised that they did had not seen a poop tube before. Granted this was 20 years ago. Sir....I plan on pooping in a paper bag and then placing said poop bag in this tube. The dudes look was priceless and I think he thought I was the crazy one.

I'm still a bit confused...

Can someone post a youtube video of an actual event in which the poop tube is used for real?

Thank you.

Mac is on the money.........some containers are wide enought to drop it right in........ don't forget to add something to keep the furmantation down...like r v blue stuff or others mentioned above.....peanut butter or mayo in the large size have a large lids .........do wrap plenty of duct tape around container
