CA 14er for Labor Day Weekend?


Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

Labor Day is coming up and I wanted to take some time during the 3 day weekend to backpack and climb my first 14er.

jacket found

Hi all

This past weekend I found a nice jacket right in the notch beneath the summit headwall on the north ridge of Lone Pine Peak. Bit of a long shot but would be great to get it back to its original owner. Message me some details about the jacket if it's yours!
