Fall color 2014

Thought some of you who enjoy the seasonal change might want to know we have some fall color showing in the E. Sierra. First hand reports from me. Sabrina basin starting to show, a bit showing up N. Fork Big Pine Creek, aspens above North Lake starting to turn as are those near Cardinal Lodge near Aspendell. A little early this year. Maybe a low water/snow cycle is leading to it but nevertheless if you ...

Orange Ogre

Just up Taboose Pass trail sits this beauty, Orange Ogre. Anyone have info or knowledge of climbable routes (by any means) up it? Picture is western aspect, the other sides don't look as nice. I'm hopeful there's a Grade IV easy "grandma" route up it. :)

Their physical abilities vary and really my goal is to help them get away from the office and the day-to-day buzz that can weigh any of us down. If anybody knows a good spot based on my criteria, please let me know. I'm mostly interested in a peak because that is my personal favorite, but a subpeak, lake, or other secluded spot would ...

Request for pictures of summit register pages from Minarets

Are you planning to climb any Minarets, or did you climb any last summer after mid-July?

If so, you can help in the search for the remains of hiker/climber Matthew Greene by (when safe and convenient) taking pictures of pages from summit registers in the Minarets from between ~7/12/13 and 7/31/13 .

Matt was doing hikes/climbs in the Mammoth area last summer while waiting for his car to be repaired; he disappeared on July ...
