The Beaten Path

Hello all,

I'm planning on hiking the Beaten Path from Clarks Fork to East Rosebud mid August. Does anyone know a good way to find a shuttle for a reasonable price?

Cirque of the Towers Advice? Cirque of the Towers Advice?

I'm planning to head into the East Fork/Pyramid Lake area, possibly returning to Big Sandy by way of Texas Pass and the Cirque and am concerned about food storage in the Cirque. Usually hang my food in a tree and don't know if that's an option or if it's recommended in the camp area below the Towers. Never had any problems with bears in my Wind River travels but have heard that they can be ...

Big July Snow and Granite Peak.

We got slammed by mother nature here in Bozeman yesterday. Hail, rain and lotsa snow up high. There could be a foot up there in Hyalite. It's very white! We have a trip planned for Granite in mid-August and I was wondering if anyone has first hand info of what happened over there.

Planning a trip to Gannett. Any help greatly appreciated

Hello all. My wife and I are planning a trip to have a go at Gannett peak. We are pretty new climbers but not new to the back country. Our experience mountaineering thus far includes a ten day class and summit of Rainier with RMI in 2012, a failed winter attempt at longs via cables route this past Jan. A successful winter ascent on Mt Washington, a failed attempt of Longs Kiener route last summer ...

Gannett Peak conditions report

Some had asked for a Gannett Peak conditions report: Three of us attempted Gannett via Elkhart Park and Titcomb Basin from July 11-13. Jeremy summited, Nate and I did not. I attribute my lack of success to overestimation of fitness level and underestimation of difficulty. It would have been much more likely as a 4-5 day trip. There was a surprising amount of up and down the first 15 miles. Full pack combined with altitude ...

Middle Teton - SW Couloir - Gear?? Ice Axe?

Hi! My husband and I are planning to summit the Middle Teton the first weekend in August (2015) and I'm wondering about equipment. This year, do you think crampons, an ice axe or trekking poles will be necessary/recommended?

We do a lot of hiking, but haven't had to worry about the possibility of ice/snowfields at this elevation before.

I've heard you might be able to rent ice axes in Jackson, WY? Does anyone know anything ...

Weekend Cloud Peak snow

Will be on a 3 dayer til Sat in the Bighorns. Last minute deal. Forecast is for 4-6" of snow on Cloud Peak Fri eve-Sat morn. Anyone planning on being up there should plan accordingly. Snow won't be there long, but the high will be 34 on the peak on Sat. It's kinda thrown my Blacktooth plans for a loop, but hey.....that's just how it goes. :)

Tent found in Bighorns

I was coming down on the Sherd Lake loop in the Bighorns yesterday and found a tent lying in the trail. At the trailhead was a note and number to call but they said it was a wrong number. Steve....I have your tent. Pm me.

Sawtooth conditions

Boise is forecast to hit 109 degrees Sunday.

With that in mind, what kind of conditions is the Sawtooth Wilderness (ID) experiencing? I'm hiking a 65-mile loop in about three weeks. I'm sure the passes won't hold snow then, but any peaks left with substantial snow by then?

Thanks for any input.
