Zion Classic Peaks

So a similar post was made not too long ago but the requirements were different.
We have 3 days in Zion and are looking for routes from 4th-5.6ish. Up to 5.8ish if it is a short pitch.
We're in good shape and decently fast, so we'd like to fill the days sunrise to sunset, Apr 24-26.
My buddy is not a canyoneer and we are not bringing wetsuits... unless a canyon trumps the peaks.

Ptarmigan Traverse

Couple of questions for those of you with experience with the Ptarmigan Traverse. My daughter has finally expressed an interest in going mountaineering and we have tentative plans to do the traverse North to South around the third week of July this year. A little background might be in order, so that responses are appropriate.

Mount Hood

I've done summer and winter hiking and some light mountaineering here in the Adirondacks and a buddy and I have talked about a road trip to Portland. Being less than 2 hours away, and me being drawn to the mountains, Mount Hood obviously has a lot of pull. Just fit the sake of considering it, I was wondering about Mount Hood in June-August. I am somewhat familiar of the South Side Route and plently of ...

Killen Creek TH access and rote conditions in 2015

I wonder when the access to Killen Creek TH might become available this year (from both sides). Is there any particular website with roads and routes condition updates related to Mt Adams area? I’m planning a trip to the Cascades in June/July preferably sooner than later.
