Denali Training

What would you suggest for training for Denali? Where should I start? Suggestions for mountains? I have so far done Guadalupe Peak and Enchanted rock.

Leave No Trace

Today, I decided to go for a hike in the San Gabriels. Originally planning for Badden Powell, but didn't know the road was closed at Islip Saddle so my plan B was bagging Mt. Williamson. It was a beautiful day, and a beautiful hike.

NPS Backcountry Rangers with Open Carry Handguns

Hi folks,

I'm well aware that front country (I hate that term) NPS law enforcement rangers are issued and carry sidearms as standard practice. And I knew that back country rangers were issued handguns, I just didn't think that back country NPS rangers did open carry now. I could be ...

Best Glissade in Lower 48 States

seano missing?

Sean O'Rourke, also known on his blog as Dr. Dirtbag has not been heard from since May 8. He posted a notice of his ascent of Lackawana Peak on his blog at that time and moved on to Buckskin but was turned back by lightning. We are fairly certain that on Tuesday May 9 Sean attempted a climb of Shoshoni and Apache Peaks from the Long Lake Trailhead They received heavy snow in that area ...
