List Completer

I've never completed a single list, but my son, Matt, completed the BSA 'Rim of the Bay' list. A feat that no one in his troop has ever accomplished. Hopefully, genetics played at least a small roll in this feat. :)

Mount Sill East and North Couloirs

Hello. I am returning to Mount Sill in 2 weeks. I failed to summit in August. We took the route through Scimitar Pass. My partner injured his knee and we turned back. I do not want to repeat the hike from hell again. I have been reading about more direct routes on the East Couloir and Glacier Gap. First, crampons and ice axe are discussed in most of the write-ups. But is it necessary this ...

Joshua Tree Guide Book

Anyone have a suggestion for a guide book for rock climbing Joshua Tree? I'm looking for something that outlines routes in the 5.2-5.10 ish range... i'd love to get to 5.10 someday, but I don't have much ambition to get going much further than that. Therefore, I certainly don't need anything "expert" level or above... just something mellow for a couple of hacks out running 5.6-8's for a couple of nice weekends... trad/TR/sport whatever... thanks ...

Southfork pass?

Hi all,

I've never done S. Fork pass. Is it one that'll be much worse for wear late season drought year? That is, given the lack of snow coverage, will it be unusually nasty? (I have a pretty high tedium threshold.)
Thanks for any useful feedback...

Smoke in Bishop

I just heard that Bishop is pretty smoky as of noon Friday 9/19/14. Is it looking better? I thought they had the June Lake fires under control.

Cora Lake

Any one planning a trip up the Isberg Pass Trail should be advised that the only water between the trailhead and Sadler Lake is at Cora Lake. Cora Creek, Granite Creek and Chetwood Creek have all stopped flowing. That situation is not particularly unusual, however a herd of cattle has taken up residence at Cora Lake (apparently due to the lack of water elsewhere), depositing copious cow pies around the lake shore and otherwise negatively ...

King Fire Closures (Desolation/Granite Chief)

"Due to the uncertain path of the King Fire, the U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit has closed the McKinney Rubicon Trail and is advising against travel into the Desolation or Granite Chief wildernesses. The Eldorado National Forest has issued a forest closure for its Desolation Wilderness trails and trailheads. In particular, hikers and equestrians should consider cancelling plans for overnight travel into the Desolation and Granite Chief wildernesses."
