Adventure Pass Gone & Park Free within 1/2 mi of TH

Good news on the fee front for California hikers and climbers that may be interested. Courtesy of the Western Slope No-Fee Coalition, which notified its members via email. Below is the text of that email announcement received June 27. Six California hiker groups sued and the FS settled. A huge win for The People! :D

6a climbing by 4 year old in gym


(2:30 Min)

He has no trainer or training group. What do you think?
Now he is 5, should he have training? or should he just continue climbing without somebody who is helping him?

Its a video for my son with his favorite song. We watched a football-soccer video by a young talented player and he wanted a video too :) ...

Enough training?

So I'm planning on hiking Harney Peak in SD. I've been running 200 miles per week, doing 3,000 vertical a day on a treadmill, swimming 20 miles a week, bench press 400 lbs, and am covered head to toe in Columbia gear. Is this enough?

Reds Meadow Parking

I haven't been to Reds Meadow in quite some time. I would like to start a dayhike on the JMT south at around 5AM, long before the shuttles. Is there anywhere I can make this happen? I was wondering if the TH information on this site is still accurate? It says you can park "near the ranger cabin." Anyone know? Thanks.

Bear protocol outside of GNP

Hello SPers. I'm going to be starting from East Glacier and hiking west ~150 miles. I know in GNP there are poles or whatever for food in camp. Once i've hit the western border of the park though, i'm not quite sure whether i should be carrying a bear canister or what. I'm used to only carrying it in areas where it's mandatory, but i'm also not used to hiking much in grizzly bear country. ...

Climbing partners in Korea

Hi everyone,

My name is Nate, just got to Seoul, where I'll be for the next 6 months. Looking for people who like to climb around the 5.7-5.10a/b level for the weekends and whatever weekdays I am off. I can lead trad at 5.7 solidly, some type of 5.8 climbs right now, but once I get back into actively climbing and get some routes in I might be able to swing some 5.9 leads. I'll ...

Mt Agassiz vs Long Pine Peak


I am not a technical climber. I only hike. I did Long Pine peak before and I am thinking to hike the Mt Agassiz from Bishop Pass. I know it is class 2 or 3. Can someone tell me comparing to Long Pine peak, how challenging Mt Agassiz is?

Easy 1st Time Backpacking Trip with Kids

Hi -

I am looking for a relatively easy backpacking trip that can be done with kids. Things I'm trying to find:

1. Something for a large group. We're doing it with other families, so with kids included, our group is 6 adults and 11 kids.
2. Something no further than a 4 hour drive from where we live (Tehachapi).
3. Something that can be done in 3 days.

I've spent way too much time ...
