Need topological Map of Glacier for PnP Roleplaying Game

Hi everyone,

I'm leading ("mastering") a so called pen and paper roleplaying game (like Dungeons and Dragons) where player characters are hunting evil people in a snowy glacier type mountain range. Since I have no clue about hiking or climbing or anything of the sort, I need your assistance: I seek a series of maps that I can use to tell my Players "This is where you are, there are mountains and snow everywhere, where ...

***NEW, Want To Climb Denali***

Hello, new here from the Midwest and looking to start climbing. Within two years I want to climb Denali. I have some climbing experience from my military background, but not a pro. Any suggestions? Is my goal too steep for a rookie? Looking for a thoughtful discussion of how YOU started out. THANKS!

El Capitan numbers

Hi, I am writing an article on women in endurance sports. I want to include the numbers of climbers who have successfully climbed El Capitan in Yosemite and of this number how many were women. Does anyone have these figures or know where I can find them? Thanks.

East Coast Backcountry Scrambles?

I am looking for long backcoutry scrambles (like the Flatirons, but without the traffic) that are within 2-3 hours from the NYC. I guess it can be anything up to 5.5-5.6, as long as it's long, secluded and not steep (shoulder tendinitis).

PS. There supposed to be some long slides in Harriman and on the back side of the Gunks ridge, any ideas where exactly?

Just tackled the Ozarks

I don't know where to start this; I am vacationing up in the Ozarks this week(starting the 13th), and so far it seems like I have been getting more serious. Hiked an estimated 10 miles so far, and I'm not going back until the 20th. I may be hooked.
