Mt. Agassiz

All of the trip reports I've seen of Mt. Agassiz (the one at Bishop Pass, not the one in Tahoe)are either a summer-fall scramble or a winter ascent. Is there any particular reason it's not climbed in, say, June with an ice axe and crampons when the chutes are still snow-filled and therefore less-prone to rockfall?

Thanks!

Overnight on a 14er

Hey all,
I'll be out in Golden, CO in mid-June, and would like to do a trip that falls within these parameters:

1) Overnight camp on the trail (at higher elevations if possible)
2) Class 3 or 4
3) within 2 hours of Golden

I did Longs last August, which was a blast, but I did it in a day, and this time around, I'd like something with comparably difficult terrain but the chance to ...

Coso Range Wilderness Fossil Bones And Petroglyphs

Folks interested in visiting the Coso Range Wilderness near Olancha might want to combine petroglyphs, hiking, and general adventuring with a visit to a rather significant fossil locality in the Cosos to observe mineralized mammal bones weathering out of ancient sediments.

Just recently, over at http://inyo.coffeecup.com/site/coso/cosofieldtrip.html, I uploaded a page called "Field Trip To A Vertebrate Fossil Locality In The Coso Range, California". This is of course a completely personal, non-commercial web site.

It's a ...

Road to Bloody Mountain.

Next few weeks hope to hit the Mammoth area and have been considering climbing the north coulior of Bloody Mtn. Anybody been up that way lately? How far (if at all) can you drive up the 4WD road? Can you get up at all? Or is the snow too low?
Thanks

Do you recognize these mountains?

Taken on a flight from Denver to Seattle on March 25th. I was thinking I was over Idaho and that it might be near Borah Peak but not familiar enough with the area to be sure. The peak left of center looks distinctive enough that I thought someone might recognize it. View is looking south.
Any thoughts?

Zion Park free camping

anyone know if Mosquito Cove is open for camping? It was closed years ago, but I haven't been down there in a while and wanted to know if it opened again.

I want to head down to Zion soon and would like some free camping.

Mt Hood April 29-30

Hi- advice, please! I am planning on going to Mt Hood end of April with a friend. Looking at mountain weather forecast, looks like days without a fair amount of snow are pretty rare. Where could I find detailed avalanche forecast? If Hood is not in, could you recommend similar routes to Hood south side in the area? Thanks, Charlie
