September Climbing

Hey all! I'm a novice climber, having done only one climb this spring and one and a half this summer, but I'm looking to squeeze one more in before the end of the season. I haven't spent much time in the sierras at all (only moved here a couple years ago) and I was wondering when the snows really start to set in. I'm hoping to make another attempt on Agassiz from Bishop Pass over ...

Bighorns fire

Hasn't voted

A 3,000 acre fire is burning in the Bighorns and has US16 shut down. If you were planning on climbing cloud Peak via Tensleep, you're out of luck. You'll have to use Bighorn reservoir access. The standard ne approach for the Blacktooth to Cloud Peak eastern Cirque alpine Rock climbs are unaffected. This affects all of the sport routes in Tensleep Canyon.

Hiking a 14er - which one, when?

Hi All,

I've been thinking of hiking up Pike's Peak "soon" but unable to commit to the plan because of some doubts (mostly regarding the wisdom of it for me). I hope to get some answers here in order to proceed, go elsewhere or something.

I am a hiker and not interested in, or knowledgeable about, technical climbing. I've been wanting to do a 14er for many years and have a fair idea of which ...

Sand Fire - Wildlife Waystation in peril

The Sand Fire, started yesterday at CA-14 near west end of Soledad Canyon, has now spread south nearly to Gold Creek in Little Tajunga area. It is now very close to the Wildlife Waystation, which is a shelter-of-last-resort for many large animals (both native and exotic). They are asking for donations, transportation and storage space.

Day tripping the Bonds with Fido?

Cori bagged 5 more 4ks this week to make 30. She is a 70# lab/GSD that is nearly all black.

How much exposure is there on a Bond traverse from Zealand Rd. to Lincoln Woods? Even short shade by human standards helps Cori out a lot, if it's hot. I'm going to be staying 45m from Lincoln Woods for a week at the end of August, and tentatively planning to (weather depending) drive to Zealand ...

Gear consultation - Aconcagua and beyond

I'm looking forward to next year since I plan to try Aconcagua and hopefully return to Nepal for Baruntse.
Since I'm not a very experienced climber at all (been to 6k at most in Nepal with newbie gear), I do want so advice from you guys.

I did some gear restock this year. I have some questions about purchasing more/better gear and about my current stuff:
- I have the summit series Northface Himalayan ...
