Climbing Mt Mansfield this Friday 10/20/17


I'll be in VT this week and was thinking of climbing Mt. Mansfield this Friday. I'm having trouble finding any recent trip reports. What sort of conditions can I expect? I'm not comfortable doing this if an ice axe is required, but I imagine that I don't need one yet. Any thoughts?


Mt. Whitney Trail Thanksgiving Week

Hey, me and some buds are gonna try going up Whitney Thanksgiving Week, providing the weather isn't nuts. Obviously if the weather conditions are horrendous, I will call it off. We have intermediate snow/ice experience, having done Rainier and Baker this last summer. Any suggestions on whether pro is needed after Trail Camp? Thanks.

V0 - V3 Classics in Bishop + Looking for V4 suggestions


I'm getting excited about Bishop Season again this year. Just went on my first trip of the 2017 season last weekend to work Solarium (V4), one of my projects. Anyways, just wanted to share a few of my favorite V0-V3 bouldering problems in Bishop, all challenging in their own right.
