Ruth Mountain

Two of us wanted to climb Sefrit on Saturday, but the Ruth Creek crossing was going to be a challenge. We would have been more motivated if the weather had been better. No rain but everything was wet. The clouds were low. So off we went to the more familiar Ruth Mountain. Snow from Hannegan Pass on. Views were very limited, but short opportunities to see Shuksan were good enough. First summit for me this ...

Reds Meadow Parking

I haven't been to Reds Meadow in quite some time. I would like to start a dayhike on the JMT south at around 5AM, long before the shuttles. Is there anywhere I can make this happen? I was wondering if the TH information on this site is still accurate? It says you can park "near the ranger cabin." Anyone know? Thanks.

Bear protocol outside of GNP

Hello SPers. I'm going to be starting from East Glacier and hiking west ~150 miles. I know in GNP there are poles or whatever for food in camp. Once i've hit the western border of the park though, i'm not quite sure whether i should be carrying a bear canister or what. I'm used to only carrying it in areas where it's mandatory, but i'm also not used to hiking much in grizzly bear country. ...

Mt Agassiz vs Long Pine Peak


I am not a technical climber. I only hike. I did Long Pine peak before and I am thinking to hike the Mt Agassiz from Bishop Pass. I know it is class 2 or 3. Can someone tell me comparing to Long Pine peak, how challenging Mt Agassiz is?

Easy 1st Time Backpacking Trip with Kids

Hi -

I am looking for a relatively easy backpacking trip that can be done with kids. Things I'm trying to find:

1. Something for a large group. We're doing it with other families, so with kids included, our group is 6 adults and 11 kids.
2. Something no further than a 4 hour drive from where we live (Tehachapi).
3. Something that can be done in 3 days.

I've spent way too much time ...

Road to TH for Hidden Lake Peaks

Looking for some feedback, as Hidden Lake Peaks is on my to do list for my trip back to the Cascades this August.

Is the road to the trailhead (Sibley Creek?) passable in a standard vehicle? I've read a number of reports - some saying yes standard vehicles can make it and others saying that 4WD or high clearance is needed. I'll be in a rental car, no high clearance, and am not interested in ...

Road conditions Boundary Peak (NV)

I was thinking to do Boundary Peak via Trail Canyon this summer but heard that a few years ago the road got washed out badly. Does anybody have a more recent report, maybe from this or last year? I was there in 2007 and we were able to drive almost all the way to the trailhead in a small 2wd Toyota sedan but apparently things have changed since then. Any beta would be appreciated!

Any one been into Monte Cristo area? Specifically the East Wilman's Spire?

Temple Craig conditions?

Was thinking of climbing it on July 4th weekend, but was wondering what are conditions at the moment? Judging by other peaks (bear creek spire), seems like there is still tons of snow?
