Pro for Owen Spalding

I'm doing Owen Spalding car to car in a day in August. I'm assuming a standard rack of stoppers and tri cams is more than enough. Is this correct? I'm thinking about the last few 5.3-5.4's I led and don't remember using much big stuff unless it was a specific crack climb. Or should I take 3-4 camalots in the 1-3 range?

Greater Bozeman area: late April backpacking?

Hi, we are two capable backpackers (plus one dog) looking for ideas for routes around Bozeman that might be good this time of year. We're looking for a 2-3 night backpacking trip next weekend (23 April) and just aren't sure what the snow conditions are like right now. Some occasional snow fields would be fine (and we're certainly prepared for more to fall), but we'd rather not be slogging through it the whole time - ...

Middle Teton

I am making my first trip to the Tetons this summer and one of the days I want to do Middle Teton. I just hike/scramble, and don't want to deal with ropes and climbing equipment, so I figure in the interest of safety Grand Teton is off the table here. It seems the easiest route up Middle Teton is from the south (southwest Couloir) by taking the south fork of the canyon, however I was ...

Wind Rivers water in August?

I'm taking our scout troop to Island Lake from Elkhart Park, and we'll be going in mid August. I've been to the Winds a number of times, but always in July, so I'm wondering what the water supply is like in August. Will there still be random streams all over to get water from, or do all but the major creeks dry up? Thanks guys (and gals).

Gannett Peak in June/July

Hi friends, we are planning to climb Gannett via the Glacier Trail 6/29-7/3, allowing 5 days in the mountain. Is there a source to gather snow condition/trail condition? Thanks so much!

Looking forward to the trip - this will be my 1st attempt to my 49th state high point.

Good Overnight Alpine Routes?

Trying to fit a new peak into this next year in the northern rockies. Thus far was planning to do Gannett, but it's looking like I may have to plan something with a shorter approach as finding the time to do Gannett could be a challenge this year.

Does anyone know of some good routes that have some diversity with glacier &/ snow travel, low grade rock, and at least an overnight (10ish miles) on ...
