Request for pictures of summit register pages from Minarets

Are you planning to climb any Minarets, or did you climb any last summer after mid-July?

If so, you can help in the search for the remains of hiker/climber Matthew Greene by (when safe and convenient) taking pictures of pages from summit registers in the Minarets from between ~7/12/13 and 7/31/13 .

Matt was doing hikes/climbs in the Mammoth area last summer while waiting for his car to be repaired; he disappeared on July ...

Mt. Sill via Palisade Glacier and North Couloir

In July 2012, I hiked up to Glacier Notch from the east, and then took the North Couloir route to Mt. Sill. I used ice axe and crampons for a while on that trip.

Next week, I’ll be hiking up to Glacier Notch from the other side (Palisade Glacier), and then taking the North Couloir route again. I’m planning to bring an ice axe, but could I leave the crampons in the car?

Langley in Early October

Langley Early October - So, this will be my 2nd ever 14er (1st was Mt Elbert in late Oct 2013) and planning a trip to Langley in early October.
Lots of posts about early summer and summer snow in the passes... What should I expect in early October, seems like after September, all the permits are up for grabs, so thinking people don't go for some reason... Planning on staying at Trailhead night before, then ...

California 14ers all climbed by human power

I recently climbed all (15) of California's fourteen thousand foot peaks and linked all the trail heads by bicycle. I used a FKT style to my trip and was able to complete my journey in 9 days 20 hours and 41 minutes. Here is a link to a full trip report and to Fastest Known Times web page where I have listed the stats:http://fastestknowntime.proboards.com/thread/46/california-fourteeners-ca, http://www.donnerpartymountainrunners.com/news/

Thunderbolt, North Couloir conditions

Anyone done this recently? I may be doing the Tbolt-Sill traverse this weekend, but suspect that, given the last few dry years we've had, this may be really icy or rocky. If so, I'd rather leave the ice gear behind and opt for a different way up Tbolt, or even start the traverse from Sill like some have recommended. Thanks in advance for your responses.

Anyone up for Little Lakes Peak -> Morgan?

Planning to do LLP -> Morgan on either Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Usually I roll solo but as class 3-4 ridges in particular are new territory for me I figured I'd see if anyone was interested.

I figure I'll pretty much follow Bob's route here: http://www.snwburd.com/bob/maps/little_lakes_1.html

Weather looks perfect all week. :-) Let me know if interested.
