Tripod / ballhead for backcountry hiking


My current tripod and ballhead are 4 and 3 lbs, respectively.
Carrying them on a multiple days hiking is truly painful.

My ideal system would be an integrated tripod/head system weighs ~2 lbs:
1. Capable of supporting a full frame body with a wide angle lens.
2. Doesn't need to be high, 20 inch Maximum height is enough
3. Legs are only one or two sections

Does such tripod exist on the market?

The Gitzo GT1541T weighs 2.1 lbs, if they cut two sections of the legs and make an integrated ballhead it might satisfy the above.
