Hiking with knee issues

As many of you know, I've been hiking for many years and contributing to SP. For seven of the last 14 years, I've had various knee, ankle, Achilles, t-band, injuries, etc, etc, etc. Despite years of issues, I have always been able to hike without problems. Now I found out I have a small lesion in my articular cartilage, which may eventually lead to more damage down the line. The only time I haven't been ...

Matterhorn boot selection


I've got week long trip coming up to the french and swiss alps, where i'm praying for weather and hoping I can get up both Mont Blanc (trois monts) and the Matterhorn (honli).

In the interest of space I don't want to take over two sets of boots, so i'm hoping for feedback from anyone who's climbed them, particularly the Matterhorn.

I've recently worn through my pair of summer boots, meaning the only pair ...

Taking the family hiking

My son is playing in a hockey tournament in Las Vegas in early July (yeah I know, we're crazy) and on our way home (Manitoba) we are thinking of camping in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and would like to do some hiking. My younger son (6) is a pretty decent hiker for his age and could manage 12 or so kilometres on day hikes in the Canadian Rockies last summer (some days ...

Missing HST Member

One of our members has not posted for almost 3 months now, he was a frequent poster, with 555 posts. I was having a PM conversation with him back at the end of Mar and all communication went dead, no PM or posts from their on.
The reason I am posting here, is that "Longri", possibly Richard Long?, had participated in the 2013 Sierra Challenge, possible as "Xi". If you have any information please chime ...

Half Dome Summit Pics 7-19-2004

Hello, I happened to stumble upon this forum in my search to solve my dilemma. On July 19th 2004 I went up the cables and made it to the top of HD. But I forgot my camera. There were many people up there (noon) taking pictures and I got to wondering if I might be in some of them. If any folks reading this were up there on that day and care to share their ...

Freel Peak approach

Hey everyone

Looking for some advice on the best approach to Freel Peak for this weekend. Main options seem to be Highway 89/Luther Pass from the south or Oneidas St/Fountain Place Rd from the west.

I was actually thinking the west approach would be preferable as it looks like the road stays lower elevation before rising nearer to the peak. However streetview shows an ominous gate at the forest service land boundary...
