WM Sleeping Bag Recommendation

Hey All,

First time poster here. Been going through a wealth of threads regarding proper gear selection and I'm still having trouble narrowing down, no pun intended, the right down bag for my wife and I.

Our upcoming trip is to Bolivia where we have planned the ascents of Pequeno Alpamayo, Huayna Potosi and Sajama.

In the past we have rented bags as our travel plans extended past the treks and didn't want the extra ...

Best way to get into mountaineering in coastal Virginia?

I live in Norfolk, Virginia and have done some hiking, camping, and surfing. About a year ago I watched 180' degrees down south and fell in love with the idea of mountaineering. I've climbed indoors somewhat but sadly haven't gotten to the climbing outdoors. Are there any good mountaineering clubs close to Virginia? Maybe mentors in the area? Should I take a class as well? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After one spine surgery and with news of another in my future I figure I should unload some gear I bought, but haven’t found much (if any) time to use. All gear is in New or Like-new condition unless otherwise indicated. Buyer pays shipping. Local pickup possible in the Sacramento area. Please email jakecattleco AT yahoo DOT com if interested and want more details or images.

Stolen Gear - Fisher Towers

Dear Summit Post users(particularly those climbing in the Fishers and/or Mystery Towers),

Sometime between Labor Day weekend, 2014, and January 16, 2015 a large stash of climbing and camping gear was stolen from what (we thought) was a well hidden location in the area between the Titan and the Mystery Towers. This was not near any of the known bivy spots in this area. The gear included a full desert iron aid rack, a double ...

Cucamonga & Ontario trail conditions

Has anyone been up Cucamonga or Ontario Peaks lately ? They are dry on the south side but is there ice on the trail on the north side ? I am here in SoCal for a couple of weeks and I would like to hike up there. I hope the trail is dry but I know how just a little snow up there can turn into a dicey layer of ice once hiked upon.

Monument Rocks, Kansas: Winter Road Conditions?

Is anyone aware or have a sense what the road conditions are like getting to the Monument Rocks in the winter? I know there are a few miles of dirt roads. Are they pretty slick or are they passable this time of year?
