Clouds Rest in November

Hi all,

Looking for a last-minute weekend trip to Clouds Rest/Sunrise Lakes this weekend before the big snows roll in. Has anyone been up there this week or last? How much snow is there on the summit? The Yosemite webcam looks pretty dry, but it's hard to tell, and there's no snow predicted for this weekend yet.

Leaf peeping

How is the leaf peeping these days on the East side? If any of you remember the Chief, he used to call the thread Leaf Porn. If not, then you have no idea what I am talking about and should disregard this part of the thread.

14er Suggestions for November with Novice Partner?

Greetings Everyone! I've long used your info and insight for climbs and appreciate all the guidance. I have a specific question though....

Eastern Sierra Cabins/Lodges

A couple years back, Convict Lake was having a special on their cabins ($99 dollars a night) around Xmas time and my wife and I splurged (for us) and stayed a couple nights. Would love to do it again, but they're just too pricey for us these days ($200+ a night).

Does any one recommend other nice cabins/lodges that might be a bit more affordable, near some nice outdoor areas for skiing, snowshoeing (assuming we ...

Cathedral Peak: SE Buttress

Hey All,

Been a long time since I last posted. Recently moved to CA from MN and more climbing is being done.

We are planning on running up to Cathedral Peak this Saturday as it seems we have one last window of opportunity to climb. The planned route is the moderate SE Buttress route. The description seems adequate but I was wondering if anyone has a hi-res pic and might be able to mark up ...

Lake Tahoe Backcountry Huts

I recently fled Southern California and am now living in the Reno area and am eager to explore the mountains near here.

This winter, I intend to check out the Sierra Club's Lake Tahoe Backcountry Huts. The website has lot of information, but does anyone have any other suggestions or experiences or proposed itineraries for hut to hut snowshoe or ski trips? I'd love to hear some ideas.

Peak suggestions (12k/13k) for this weekend?


I'm thinking of doing a backpacking trip from SF to the Sierras and maybe do a peak over the weekend. Any suggestions? Thinking of doing something similar to Conness, Matterhorn or Abbot (short enough to be comfortable for a weekend and backpacking options fairly near a trailhead)?
