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.

ID this peak! (Please :))

I need help identifying this peak. This is photo is from the north fork of the lone pine creek near lower boy scout lake, looking North(roughly). The peak I'm interested in is on the left.

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.

East Ridge of Mt Lyell from Donahue Pass?

My partner and I recently traversed the east ridge of Mt Lyell from Donahue Pass. Trip report here:http://www.summitpost.org/full-east-ridge-of-lyell-from-donahue-pass/908542

We have been unable to find any information about this traverse in text or online both before and after our adventure. We have been wondering when this route was first climbed and what grade the first ascensionists might have given to the route. Anyone have any leads?

Which California 14er should I climb next?

Hi Summit Posters,

I'm looking for advice on what peak to bag next in California and need our advice. I've already been on top of Mount Langley, Whitney, Shasta in California (and Hood and Rainier) but am looking for my next California 14er. Any suggestions for late September will be greatly appreciated!
