Dubois / Boundary traverse Dubois / Boundary traverse

I am in the early stages of planning a traverse from Dubois to The Jumpoff to Montgomery to Boundary. Has anyone done this traverse, and do they have a preference as to which direction to go? I've heard the route finding can be more difficult going from south to north. TIA for any feedback / advice. FWIW, I've already done Boundary and Montgomery, so I'm comfortable heading either direction for at least that section.

White Mountain questions - help/advice needed

Planning to summit White mountain the 3rd weekend of next month. I will be driving up from Orange County, California on Friday afternoon and plan to start my hike early Saturday morning around 7am, summit by around noon and be back by around 3pm. Initially I was planning to stay in Big Pine, CA which is around an hour away but I felt it would be better to camp at Grandview campground to help me ...

Split Mountain

Headed up there in a few days, just thought I'd check and see what the current conditions are like? I'm assuming snow won't be an issue (at least when doing the North Slope)..
Should I bring my ice axe & crampons?

Class-3s in the Palisades

Looking for some recommendations for day-hikes in the Palisades of the class-3 variety. This would be in August, to avoid snow (shouldn't be difficult this year). Bonus points if the route is class-3 upwards and less than that downwards.

Did Cloudripper last year via the west chute and loved it (for a point of reference). Seeing the Palisades from the peak got me itching to check them out.

Thanks. ...

Lassen peak conditions....

Hello, can anyone tell me what conditions are like up at Mt Lassen right now? I am thinking of going up there next Saturday(June 28) and wanted to know how accessible Lassen National Par, is, and also Mt Lassen. Usually it is snowed in this time of year.....but of course this year is different than most years. Any info on this would be helpful.

Lost Wedding Ring -- FOUND

If anyone is going to Charlotte Lake (less than a mile off the JMT/PCT near Kearsarge Pass in the Sierra Nevada), I lost a man's titanium wedding ring there about a week ago. It's just Ti, so no great monetary value, but of course it has sentimental value to me personally. I'm offering a $100 cash reward for your time and trouble. I'll put down below some clues as to where I believe it is, ...

Mt. Whitney in early October

I know early October is not the best time to summit Mt. Whitney but that is the only time period that a permit is still available.

Questions -
In early October what is the weather like? What additional challenges would I encounter if I do the trek in early Oct as opposed to in June/July?

Is there a decent amount of foot traffic on the mountain during this time of the year? I would be ...

junction, forester, shepherd passes conditions

Just returned from a trip over Junction, Forester, and Shepherd Passes, which is a hell of a nice loop. The Junction Pass Trail is of course degraded to the point of non-existence for the last several miles over the east side (which is really the south side) of the pass- lots of scree and sand traversing for about a mile and a half, and then a final 1500' ascent to the pass. No significant snow ...
