Hikes near Bear Creek Spire ???

Can anyone recommend good day hikes from camping at Treasure Lake in the Eastern Sierra? Or possibly from Long Lake. We're looking for two hikes to do, to the top of a pass, maybe top of a peak. Scrambling is fine as long as it's not too technical. Thanks for your help, it's greatly appreciated!

Unfinished Business

I wonder if anyone else feels this way - that any peaks you have attempted but failed at for some reason tend to gnaw at you and have more subsequent attraction than other peaks.

Otherwise, I tend to favor attempting new peaks rather than revisit ones I have already ...

Any suggestions? I'm a total novice ... a 300 pounder (but in fairly good shape)... I've been doing small hikes in Jersey (2 so far) but nothing like Mt. Washington. A few people have backed out due to the weather forecast for this Sunday (28th of June). I'm actually more anxious to try it in the rain. The one guy left besides myself is very experienced at hiking in all weather, so I'll have a ...

Climbing with oxygen

I'm an industrial design student and I've been tasked with redesigning an oxygen mask for mountaineering, I would really appreciate it if anyone that has experience using oxygen masks while climbing could take my survey!

Prominent from one angle?

Hi all,
I've been thinking a lot about prominence lately, and how we measure it. I feel like the ways we measure it now aren't very satisfying... a mountain can look really prominent from most directions, but have one nearby peak that really reduces its prominence.

So, a couple questions:

Can you think of good examples of mountains that look really prominent from one angle, but not from another? I'm thinking a mountain on the ...
