Updated Fourteeners Elevations

Hey y'all, just a quick question: What's your thoughts on the updated elevations of Colorado's fourteeners? Start referring to the peaks with their updated elevations or keep using the "classic" elevations? (as in, Pikes Peak, is it 14,110' or 14,115'? Elbert - 14,433' or 14,440'?, etc.) Trying to decide whether or not to make the update for our 2017 Colorado Fourteeners calendar.

Road conditions around Creede?

I'm trying to get a sense for how close to a few trailheads I could get early next week in an ordinary medium-clearance 4WD. Specifically, does anyone here know the plowing situation getting to Willow Creek (San Luis and friends), Sherman (Half Peak), or the road in to Rio Grande Reservoir (RGP)? This early spring is making me itch to get out into the hills.

Solo Winter Backpacking


I will be going to the Desolation Wilderness this weekend for some solo winter backpacking. Does anyone have any route or campsite recommendations, along with areas to avoid in terms of avalanche/tree well safety? I have an idea for my route, but I'm still taking suggestions.

Mount Washington New Hampshire Question

My reason for registering is to confirm my recollection of a trip to Mount Washington in 1975. I believe we (a group of about eight young people - early twenties at that time) took the cog railway to the summit and then decided to walk down. We weren't mountaineers and I recall that the hike down was not difficult at that time. Almost at the bottom we had a choice of going across the cog ...

Green Butte GPS

A bunch of buddies and myself are thinking of trying Shasta via Green Butte. Since we are not the most prepared group around I'd like to have some added security in the form of GPS track. Anybody has a gpx file you can share?
Thanks in advance.

NH 4k canine peakbagger's 1st winter hike

Cori (half lab, half german shepherd) bagged 14 peaks last summer/fall starting soon after she turned 1 on Dr.s orders (both mine and hers). I have never done a hike in the winter. I did look through some trip reports, and had an idea where to start (Waumbek), but wanted some advice, since I definitely need to be making some purchases.

I do have:
snow boots
new warm mittens
snow pants
a crappy winter hat ...
