First California 14er?

We are from Colorado and getting ready to do a road trip out to California (leaving Sunday). We have a lot of places on our wish list, but we are thinking about climbing a 14er and would like suggestions. We have both climbed nearly twenty 14ers in Colorado so we are experienced, but I'd like to climb something that is class 2-3. An overnight (or two) or a long day is fine. I know CA ...

Need help-Does anyone live in Bishop or Mammoth Lakes area

My kids are hiking the John Muir Trail with my dad, but he lost his wallet so they have no money. Someone found my Dad's wallet, but I need to find a way to get it to him or find a place where he can pick it up. Does anyone on SP live in the Bishop or Mammoth Lakes area?

Tbolt to Starlight

We're doing Starlight and Tbolt in a few weeks and I am deciding on which direction the traverse and ascents are least difficult. From Tbolt to Starlight or the reverse? I have summited Tbolt in the past. Also, does anyone have info on snow conditions for these summits. We did Russel and Williamson last week and found NO snow except a small patch on Shepards Pass. Thanks.

Thunderbolt First Ascent Party?? 1931

From my comfortable armchair I've been looking into this curious event and trying to reconcile the various incomplete reports to establish just how many of the party actually made it to the summit block top. This evening I read a transcript of Lewis Clark's 1977 oral history that is posted by the Bancroft Library here:

Here is an excerpt that should clarify the issue. Reads that the entire party made the summit.

Clark: Well, ...

Hikes near Bear Creek Spire ???

Can anyone recommend good day hikes from camping at Treasure Lake in the Eastern Sierra? Or possibly from Long Lake. We're looking for two hikes to do, to the top of a pass, maybe top of a peak. Scrambling is fine as long as it's not too technical. Thanks for your help, it's greatly appreciated!

car sleeping or backcountry camping around Mt Dana

Hi.
There's information from 2001~ on a couple SP pages that one can sleep in the car at Tioga Lake Overlook, and rangers won't object. Is this still correct; are there alternatives if not? I am looking to do Mt Dana as a preparation hike for c2c Mt Whitney, and wanted to crash somewhere close (outside of Yosemite) previous evening, do it in the morning, then drive up to WP (I have a reservation there ...

Ride to Tuolumne Meadows 10/10

Hi there,

My wife and I are heading up to Yosemite on Columbus Day weekend and are hiking from Tuolumne to the Valley, tagging Cathedral Peak on the way. Crossing my fingers for a big winter but hoping El Nino holds off until after the long weekend. I know the Parks Service hiker shuttle stops 9/20. Does anyone know a way to get from the valley to Tuolumne Meadows besides hitching? If anyone is planning ...
