Lost backpack or person on Clear Creek, Mt Shasta

On August 9th, 2014, I saw this backpack on the way up. I thought someone left it temporarily to make the summit; although, it was a bit low. On the way down the backpack was still there. I was basically the last person on the summit and did not see any potential owner of this backpack. Just posting this in case if someone might be reported missing.



Also I saw a lot of ...

Altitude sickness

Last week I did a 12.5 mile non-stop hike in Crystal Cove (Orange County area) with no real issues at all, although this hike was at sea level. I am not in great shape but i'm not out of shape either. So yesterday I finally got to summit White Mountain Peak (14,252 ft) and I was surprised at how incredibly tough it was. I am trying to find out why I found a 6.2 mile ...

Sierra Eastside Mt Morrison- Mt Baldwin linkup

About a week ago I scrambled up the north ride of Mt. Morrison and continued to followed its south ridge to summit Mt. Baldwin. I can't find anything like a trip report or beta for the south ridge and am wondering what other people who have done this thought about it. I thought it was a chossfest and would honestly not recommend it to anyone...

Camp on New Army Pass

Hi everyone,

I am going to hike to Mount Langley at this coming weekend. As a photographer, I want to take some sunrise and sunset photos on top of New Army Pass. I am thinking to camp on top of New Army Pass and summit on second day. As this will be my first time there, I am wondering what condition I would encounter.

I know there is no water up there. So I am ...

Recommendations for 3-Day September Sierra Backpack

Hi! I've been lurking the SummitPost boards for many years, but finally found occasion to create a profile and post. Thank you all for your information over the years!

I'm looking for suggestions for a 3-day, 2-night backpack in the high Sierras in early September this year. A buddy of mine is flying out from Florida to Los Angeles and I'd like to show him the beauty of region. He's less experienced than I, but ...
