Add round trip distance

I would like to recommend that summitpost add round trip distance to the route pages. I use summitpost a lot to plan trips. If the page owner doesn't put the distance somewhere on the page I have to go elsewhere to get the info I need. If round trip distance and elevation gain were attributes at the top of the page it would be really helpful.

I understand that these new fields will be blank ...

September weather for three 14'er traverse?

Hi All, I'd greatly appreciate your assistance!

A friend and I are planning a trip to Colorado to do some climbing/hiking (mostly for endurance training), and we're trying to figure out expected weather. We're looking at the Mt. Democrat/Lincoln/Bross traverse. We're probably going to end up in the middle to end of September. Can anyone advise on what kind of weather we can expect at that point? We're more than comfortable with crampons/ice axes, so ...

Altenatives to Mont Blanc for next week?

We're heading out to attempt Mont Blanc via the Gouter route in a few days. The weather has not been good, and word over there is that nobody is going for the summit, but rather ski mountaineering from mid-mountain.

We don't know what the weather will deliver in the next week (and it's not looking good for the next 2 days), but wanted to get some options for climbs that are of similar quality/style to ...

Need topological Map of Glacier for PnP Roleplaying Game

Hi everyone,

I'm leading ("mastering") a so called pen and paper roleplaying game (like Dungeons and Dragons) where player characters are hunting evil people in a snowy glacier type mountain range. Since I have no clue about hiking or climbing or anything of the sort, I need your assistance: I seek a series of maps that I can use to tell my Players "This is where you are, there are mountains and snow everywhere, where ...

Trango Raptor

I dropped one of my Trango Raptors the other day, and watched it slide into a crevasse.
So, one that note, if someone out there has a Raptor ( newer generation)they would like to get rid of, or even a pair if the price is right, let me know.
I have PayPal.

Layering legs during summit push

I've seen some reports from Aconcagua where peope claims that base layer + softshell wasnt warm enough and that the winds were harsch. Even read about frostbite at the lower part of the body. :o
In that case I wonder if it's enough to add a hardshell to block wind more than what the softshell provides, I.e

Merino base pants
Softshell pants (midweight)
Hardshell pants or bib ...

Drop in oxygen level & mountain sickness at 11,000 ft

I recently went for Hampta Pass trek. The trek was well organized and we did acclimatize for a day and started the trek next day.

Initial two days of trek went quite well. On 3rd day of trekking, I started feeling breathlessness, fatigue and shivering by the time we reached next camp. At night, I was found breathing heavily, and my oxygen level was found to be around 32%. This was a serious condition as ...

***NEW, Want To Climb Denali***

Hello, new here from the Midwest and looking to start climbing. Within two years I want to climb Denali. I have some climbing experience from my military background, but not a pro. Any suggestions? Is my goal too steep for a rookie? Looking for a thoughtful discussion of how YOU started out. THANKS!
