Body of Missing Climber Found in the Palisades

http://www.fresnobee.com/news/local/art ... 25147.html

A very sad and unfortunate ending to an H-80 search.
H-80 assisted Inyo County Sheriff's Department searching over two days for a missing hiker on the Thunderbolt to Mount Sill traverse. The traverse is very technical and dangerous, located at over 14,000 ft MSL, in the Sierras southwest of Bishop. Our condolences to the family and friends of the ...

Solar Eclipse Over Under

With Monday's total eclipse passing directly over the tetons and winds, what's the over under on accidental deaths on Monday? I suspect that the tetons will be reasonably controlled by the nps, but in the winds (specifically Gannett, Fremont, and most Titcomb peaks) to be completely overrun. My guess is that someone falls off the snowbridge on Gannett, gets swallowed up by the glacier, and that someone stumbles over the NE face of Fremont. Hope ...

Anyone have pics from Mt. Sill southwest towards Peak 13962?

Anyone have some recent pics from Mt Sill looking southwest towards Peak 13992 (at least I think it's 13992) that you would like to post? I am interested in snow/ice conditions towards the Polemonium Glacier. Written description welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Ritter SE glacier snow conditions

A friend and I are planning on climbing Mt. Ritter via the SE glacier in a week and a half and are considering bringing our skis. If anyone has been up there and can report on the conditions that would be great. It seems unlikely that this late in the season it would be even remotely skiable but with this crazy snow year who knows! Thanks in advance!

Guanella Pass, CO dispersed camping conditions?

I'm heading in the diretion of Guanella Pass this week. I was wondering if anyone knew the condition of the Natl Forest Service dispersed camping near the bottom of the climb to the summit. There have been a lot of flash flood warrnings throughout the rest of the state for the last month or so.

That spot is right beside a small creek.

Thought someone might know. I'll probably call the NFS office next.

Thanks ...
