South Lake Road Closure... how's that working?

They have closed the last mile or so of the South Lake Road (branch from Buttermilk out of Bishop) for construction of a new, better parking area. Rangers say in the interim, one can pull off on side of road below Parcher's. The closure started Sept 8, will go into October. No bear boxes near temporary area. I called Bishop Info station yesterday, but they couldn't off much comfort. ...

Mt Abbot Route?


I tried summiting Mt Abbot last weekend but failed at the last 600 ft. Could someone help me by telling me a good route to go up to the top? Here is an image I took - http://i.imgur.com/4fDO3Uf.jpg. Feel free to use it.

Mt Abbot climbing conditions

Has anyone recently climbed Mt Abbot recently? I would like to make a summit attempt this weekend.

Most trip reports that I have found online date back to 2012 or earlier. I am curious about the glacier condition after the last several dry years. I am not sure if I really need crampons or whether something like micro-spikes would be OK.

Any input would be appreciated.

CA 14er for Labor Day Weekend?


Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

Labor Day is coming up and I wanted to take some time during the 3 day weekend to backpack and climb my first 14er. Wondering if it is possible to climb any of those mountains (except White Mountain Peak) since I don't have any permits? Which ones do you think are good mountains during this time of the year? I have some experience (climbed Conness last weekend, ...

Sitton Peak page up for adoption (So Calif)

Anyone in Southern California interested in taking over the Sitton Peak page on Summitpost, and the associated Bear Canyon Trail page? My hiking/climbing days are all but over (medical reasons), so I'm not able to occasionally hike it to check on conditions. Right now they really need good map links. These would be ideal pages for someone in the So Calif area, especially south Orange County/North San Diego County, SW Riverside County (Corona/Elsinore/Temecula area). Look ...
