Borah 2014 Conditions

Anybody have any beta on the North Face of Mt Borah this year? We're trying to plan a 2-day trip starting from Rock Creek, camping at the base of the face, starting early to climb the face and descending via the hiking route (over chicken out ridge). Looks like most of the TRs I've seen have usually go around late Sept and early Oct but no one has conditions in the past year or two... ...

Black Tooth from the west

Climbing Black Tooth, a Bighorns 13er, from the west tomorrow as a day trip. Will be scouting the Blacktooth to Cloud Peak enchainment while up there. The enchainment covers the north/south ridge that runs from Blacktooth to Cloud and goes over/around Mt Woolsey, the Gargoyle, and Innominate.....all alpine rock fins at 12-13k. Good Golden trout fishing on the way as well!

Couple missing on Blacktooth

A young couple from Sheridan is missing on/near Blacktooth in the Bighorns. Their packs and camp have been found but no sign of them. Went up labor day weekend and haven't been heard from. They were climbing it from the Bighorn res side. I'll be climbing in from Wilderness basin this Sat. Please pray for a good outcome for these folks.

Will pay someone $$$ to recover lost gear - Granite Peak

Me and a buddy attempted Granite last week by the SW Couloir route. We were coming down late in the day and had route finding issues locating the small lake/pond that we were camped at. After about an hour, with the temps and sun falling we made a judgement call and left our camp behind to hike out. We left a good bit of gear. I can mark exactly where the camp was on a ...

Grand Teton: Stettner

Hey all,

This past Spring (2014), I was interested in heading to the Grand in early-mid March to climb the Teton via the Stettner/Chevy/Ford route. However, the peaks had seen an exceptionally high snowfall, making the avalanche danger very high and snow conditions very strenuous to travel in. All in all, I settled for the southern Sierra.

It was very difficult to acquire a decent amount of beta regarding the Stettner route, though. I've been ...
