Cantara Loop crag developer? + Lost gear! (Shasta area)

While climbing at the Cantara Loop crag near Mt. Shasta City on Sunday 4/26, I believe we left a black CAMP rope bag with rope and gear at the trailhead. While there, we talked with one of the area's developers, who was there with his two dogs and white truck. If you know who this is, he may have picked up our gear and I would love if you could put us in touch. Respond ...

Lost go-pro on Shasta / Casaval

I had stopped to put on my glove liners and record my kids coming up when it popped off and rolled down into the valley (down lower than many people to climb Casaval would normally go, on the Eastern side of the valley). I didn't want to take the time ...

best harder day-hikes/summits if I'm new to Sierras

I have not done any hikes in the Sierras and I want to do a lot this season.
One thing is, unless absolutely necessary for acclimatization due to low start, I really want to do everything car to car.
Let's say my final goal would be Whitney via MR car to car, after sleeping at Whitney Portal.

I wonder what is the good progression of hikes (class 3 and below) to do, esp. for ...
