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.

Freel Peak approach

Summer plans with Sierra snow....

So with the Sierra holding epic amounts of snowfall, I'm rethinking my current plans of doing a south to north traverse from ansel Adams to tuoulumne in late July. Was wondering what people have been seeing on the west side of the Sierra Hey as far as snowlines in Sequoia...

Possibly considering Jennie lakes loop in early July and maybe golden trout wilderness late July/early August...

I don't have any experience in either of these ...

Momyer trail shortcut?

I am hiking up to San Gorgonio this weekend and was trying to figure out if there's a short cut to make the approach shorter. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Palisade glacier conditions

What are the conditions on the trail leading from Glacier lodge to Palisade glacier? Do I need snow shoes?
How is the glacier and the chimney? Do I need snow boots above the chimney or I can finish it in climbing shoes?
