Telescope Peak in February

Hey everyone! Thinking of visiting Death Valley in February and would love to do Telescope Peak then. I was wondering if I'd be able to do it with microspikes, poles, and an ice axe? Or are crampons/snowshoes necessary?

Hwy 168 - North Lake/Sabrina

FYI, they closed the gate just above Aspendell on Highway 168 yesterday. If you were planning on a trip out of Sabrina or North Lake you will have to park at the turnout by the gate and add the extra couple of miles to the trailheads. Road is perfectly dry for now but snow is predicted for this Sunday - November 27.

Clouds Rest in November

Hi all,

Looking for a last-minute weekend trip to Clouds Rest/Sunrise Lakes this weekend before the big snows roll in. Has anyone been up there this week or last? How much snow is there on the summit? The Yosemite webcam looks pretty dry, but it's hard to tell, and there's no snow predicted for this weekend yet.

Leaf peeping

How is the leaf peeping these days on the East side? If any of you remember the Chief, he used to call the thread Leaf Porn. If not, then you have no idea what I am talking about and should disregard this part of the thread.

Eastern Sierra Cabins/Lodges

A couple years back, Convict Lake was having a special on their cabins ($99 dollars a night) around Xmas time and my wife and I splurged (for us) and stayed a couple nights. Would love to do it again, but they're just too pricey for us these days ($200+ a night).

Does any one recommend other nice cabins/lodges that might be a bit more affordable, near some nice outdoor areas for skiing, snowshoeing (assuming we ...

Cathedral Peak: SE Buttress

Hey All,

Been a long time since I last posted. Recently moved to CA from MN and more climbing is being done.

We are planning on running up to Cathedral Peak this Saturday as it seems we have one last window of opportunity to climb. The planned route is the moderate SE Buttress route. The description seems adequate but I was wondering if anyone has a hi-res pic and might be able to mark up ...
