Camp on New Army Pass

Hi everyone,

I am going to hike to Mount Langley at this coming weekend. As a photographer, I want to take some sunrise and sunset photos on top of New Army Pass. I am thinking to camp on top of New Army Pass and summit on second day. As this will be my first time there, I am wondering what condition I would encounter.

I know there is no water up there. So I am ...

Recommendations for 3-Day September Sierra Backpack

Hi! I've been lurking the SummitPost boards for many years, but finally found occasion to create a profile and post. Thank you all for your information over the years!

I'm looking for suggestions for a 3-day, 2-night backpack in the high Sierras in early September this year. A buddy of mine is flying out from Florida to Los Angeles and I'd like to show him the beauty of region. He's less experienced than I, but ...

Rock slide - Meysan Lake area

This is the main descent chute between Lone Pine Peak and Peak 3985.
On July 27, 2014 we saw a major rock avalanche off one of the walls (climbers right of the main descent chute). Thousands of pounds of rock came down. Some rocks even hit the wall on the other side.

Be extremely careful and quick coming down this chute, stay as far to the climbers left as possible!

Lost Twins Cirque

Got into the Lost Twins cirque in the Bighorn range last weekend. Was scouting a route that diagonals a 1500ft face. Hadn't been feeling good at all for a few weeks prior but still managed 15 miles in 5hrs 45mins. This year has been slim pickings with a long vacation back east, moving, and a few rounds of sickness!

Rosy Finch Peak


Thinking of traversing to Rosy Finch Peak from Pyramid Peak in a few weeks. Anyone done this? I see it's rated as class-3, but am wondering how solid the rock is, exposure, etc.

Plan is to then descend SE to Finch Lake. How is it getting back to Morgan's Pass from there? As easy as it looks on the topo maps?

Sierra Nevada Red Lake Trailhead

I'm planning to climb Split Mountain overnight sometime during the week of Aug 11. I drive a passenger car which won't make it to the trailhead. What is the best option if I can't get a lift from someone w/4wd? (I will trade a case of beer for a lift!) I've been to Tinnemaha campground, maybe drive Fuller road as far as I can and hike in? Is the creek on private land? Any suggestions ...

Mount Adams in August? Mount Adams in August?

Hi all,

Living in Texas I have to jump on every chance I can to climb in the "real" mountains, so with a last-minute family gathering in Washington being planned for next week I was poking around to see if there were any mountains that I could conceivably climb on short notice and possibly solo. The South Spur of Adams looks like it might work, but also looks like it might be a real pain ...

Lost Dog Near Georgia Pass July 20th

He got lost in the Colorado mountains near Georgia Pass around noon on Sunday 7/20/14. Maxi is a former military working dog that my husband and I adopted a year ago and love him very much! He was last seen about 2 miles past Michigan Creek Camp Ground on Georgia Pass west of Jefferson, CO on the east side of the pass. Share post with everyone you know in ...
