Peak suggestions (12k/13k) for this weekend?


I'm thinking of doing a backpacking trip from SF to the Sierras and maybe do a peak over the weekend. Any suggestions? Thinking of doing something similar to Conness, Matterhorn or Abbot (short enough to be comfortable for a weekend and backpacking options fairly near a trailhead)?

VIDEO - Join me on the summits of some Colorado 14ers!

Hi all!

The Decalibron Loop is a trail in the US state of Colorado. It is a series of FOUR 14ers (a mountain with an elevation over 14,000 ft) - Mt. Democrat, Mt. Cameron, Mt. Lincoln, and Mt. Bross.

2016 Foliage Forecast for High Peaks and Rocky Peak areas

I recently did first time bit of hiking in the Adirondack's High Peak area. I'm planning on coming back ideally for a few days during "peak foliage" not only for High Peak area but also Rocky Peak/Giant area. I've checked out the boilerplate foliage forecasters on the web for these regions and they basically say "last two weeks of September - first week of October". QUESTIONS. Are there some on forum that have more insight ...

I am looking for information on a traverse between Mount Hinman and Mount Daniel in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. The route we are considering is coming down from Necklace Valley to the La Bohn Gap and the standard route up Hinman, coming down the NW face and traversing up to and around Pea Soup Lake to ascend Lynch Glacier. Then descending by the standard Peggy's Pond route. Has anyone crossed between these mountains at a ...

Missouri this Friday

Anybody have any beta on the conditions around the collegiate peaks? I'm thinking about hiking Missouri this Friday. Anybody that is interested is more than welcome to join us Thursday night at the camp site and Friday. We are two slow flattlanders, so you're probably best on your own during the climb. Or, you could give us a 2 hour head start and we'll see you on the summit ridge. I'm kind of thinking the ...
