Ah, the permit system

Finally managed to get a trip set for a couple of days either side of Labor Day, but too late to get an online permit. I'm hoping I'll get lucky for a walk-up at the ranger station for one of the Big Pine Creek trails, Sabrina or Pine Creek Pass. Hope to run across some SPers while I'm out there.

Mt Shasta, made it to the summit and was lucky to get back

I made it to the summit of Mount Shasta three days ago, and was so lucky to get back down again without any serious injuries.

Road to Red Lake/Split Mountain Trailhead

I've posted this question on Diesel's Split Mountain trip report but would welcome advice from anyone who has been to the Red Lake/Split Mountain trailhead recently. What is the shape of the road to the trailhead? My friends and I hope to try Split in a couple of weeks, but we've heard that the road is a challenge, and we will only have an intermediate SUV, likely not 4WD. Thanks in advance.

Where do I climb?

Hello community of awesomeness! I have recently gotten back into hiking, or more accurately, peak bagging. I am getting in shape, but am quite strong and able. I live in Grass Valley, CA which is between Sacramento and Reno, in the foothills. I'm about an hour from tahoe. I have committed to a peak a week.
