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.

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 ...

Rock slide - Meysan Lake area

This is the main descent chute between Lone Pine Peak and Peak 3985.
On July 27, 2014 we saw a major rock avalanche off one of the walls (climbers right of the main descent chute). Thousands of pounds of rock came down. Some rocks even hit the wall on the other side.

Be extremely careful and quick coming down this chute, stay as far to the climbers left as possible!

Rosy Finch Peak


Thinking of traversing to Rosy Finch Peak from Pyramid Peak in a few weeks. Anyone done this? I see it's rated as class-3, but am wondering how solid the rock is, exposure, etc.

Plan is to then descend SE to Finch Lake. How is it getting back to Morgan's Pass from there? As easy as it looks on the topo maps?
