East Coast Climbing

Hey guys!
Moved out to Montana last fall, and have gotten really into climbing! Next week I'm flying out to Vermont for the summer. I've never heard of the East being known for its climbing, but does anyone know of places to at least stay in practice?

Roky mt park technical gear nessecary

Hello everyone,
I am going to be spending the summer working at trail ridge in Rocky Mt National park. I am flying into Denver, so I'm limited on space. my question is should I bring an ice axe/ crampons or will they be unnecessary for most of the season.

Narrows in Zion- permits etc

Please post a link if this question was asked before
I am going there in late May, want to do the entire Narrows one way and camp out one night. Are permits required to camp? are they hard to get? It seems like a very popular thing to do.

Also are there services to shuttle you to one end?

Anyone interested in Rainier for mid May?

Hey Guys,

New to Summit Post, but avid climber. I've done several of the summits in the cascades and really all over the states. One, that I haven't bagged though, is Rainier.

I will be out in Seattle for work on May 11-13th and had hoped to attempt Rainier the following weekend: drive to Paradise Friday evening or Saturday morning, hike to base camp, take off early Sunday morning and back down for a flight ...
