Denali Speed Record

Kilian Jornet smashes the record with a round-trip time of 11 hours and 40 minutes. :shock:

Of course, my wife's reaction to this was: "So why is it going to take you three weeks?"

Damn over-acievers.

Work/where to live in Alaska

Hey,

I'm considering the possibility of moving to Alaska after having lived in the UK for a good number of years (US citizen). These are probably dumb/basic questions, but any answers will help me! Where would you say is a good city/area to live in Alaska (near to mountains/climbing...)? Can anybody recommend any good seasonal work (anything; tourism/fishing/agriculture/retail)? What are some good job websites for Alaska? All the ones I seem to come up with ...

Canadian Rockies beta/guidebook, 2014 snowpack

I'm looking to spend some solo (<= 5.6, relatively safe glacier travel) time in the Canadian Rockies this summer, and am looking for information on both routes and logistics, e.g. park fees and cheap/free camping. I have already found a lot of good information on Dow's pages here. Would Dougherty's "Selected Alpine Climbs" be more complete, or would another book be more appropriate?

Also, any info on the year's snowpack would be appreciated. Judging by ...

Denali Guide Experiences

Planning a guided climb of the West Buttress Route the first three weeks of June 2015. Right now, based on a few recommendations, option A in terms of the guide service I am going to use is Alaska Mountaineering School. $7000 land cost for 2014 with a good guide-client ratio.

But I am not 100-percent locked in at this point and remain interested in hearing about other experiences that SPers have had with whatever ...

Winter Ascent of Huntington's French Ridge

Don't faint kids, this is a post about something other than politics and guns from me.

A mountain I have skied by a couple of times and have always been in love with, now has been climbed on a hard route in the winter by some tough dudes (not me)....

2-3 day hike in Anchorage/Chugach area.

We are taking another trip to Alaska this July (2014) and would welcome any recommendations for a 2-3 day backpacking trip. Two years ago we did the Crow Pass Trail and we're looking for another point to point trip of a similar length. I have been reading about the Ship Creek Valley Trail but am a bit concerned about the mud, overgrowth and lack of a clear trail to follow. I'm confident of my map ...

DUI in Europe, getting in to Canada

Would be great if someone can help me on this. Does anyone know what kind of documents Canada will request from me in order to enter the country? I have a job offer, but I also have a 1 year old (first) DUI in Europe. It hasn't been to court yet, as it happened while on vacation in a Southern European country - they are slow!

I know I will need a Labout Market Opinion ...
