Questions about next week in White Cloud Wilderness

Hi folks...a few questions about backpacking next week in White Cloud Wilderness. (Two experienced backpackers but not climbers nor anglers. Happy to average five to seven miles a day depending on terrain and what there is to see. Love alpine lakes.)

* Does it look like smoke from Idaho City or North Fork fires makes it a bad idea to go to White Cloud area next week? Hard to get a read on that from ...

Wildcat RT from the ski area parking lot?

I'm trying to pick a round trip route up the wildcats that avoids too many prolonged "very rough and steep" sections. Cori and I did King Ravine up Adams last weekend, and while the views were awesome it was a little stressful.

The alltrails.com map shows a much more even route up starting at the ski area with no name. I assume this is the route referred to in trip reports as "Wildcat Ski Area ...

George Lake


Has anyone visited the George Lake area out of Lake Sabrina?

We're packing in on 8/5, and that was the only permit I could get online. Hoping to get a walk in for Bishop, Pine Creek or Sabrina Basin that morning, but since we're coming all the way from NC, I wanted to have a back-up. Looks like we'd have to cross the Thompson Ridge to get into Sabrina Basin, and I think my ...

Mt Rainier Kautz & Disappointment Cleaver Routes Conditions

Image taken on July 14th, 2016.

Kautz Glacier Route:
This route is in “very good” condition. The Nisqually Glacier is shallow and not complicated to cross (assuming you know what you are doing). To avoid crossing Wilson Glacier’s crevasses, climb up the (climber’s) left side of the cleaver to The Turtle. You may have to walk on the rocky cleaver for a while. To enter the ice chute bellow the Kautz Ice Cliff go ...

High Uintas 5 Day Route Help

My wife and I are relatively new to backpacking but are in great physical condition and experienced outdoors people. I am trying to piece together a 5 day pack in the High Uintas. Originally we were thinking of taking on High Line but that is probably more than we should take on for our first trip. After some research I'm looking at how we can hike the Henry's Fork trail, summit King's Peak and then ...

September Climbing

Hey all! I'm a novice climber, having done only one climb this spring and one and a half this summer, but I'm looking to squeeze one more in before the end of the season. I haven't spent much time in the sierras at all (only moved here a couple years ago) and I was wondering when the snows really start to set in. I'm hoping to make another attempt on Agassiz from Bishop Pass over ...

Bighorns fire

Hasn't voted

A 3,000 acre fire is burning in the Bighorns and has US16 shut down. If you were planning on climbing cloud Peak via Tensleep, you're out of luck. You'll have to use Bighorn reservoir access. The standard ne approach for the Blacktooth to Cloud Peak eastern Cirque alpine Rock climbs are unaffected. This affects all of the sport routes in Tensleep Canyon.

Hiking a 14er - which one, when?

Hi All,

I've been thinking of hiking up Pike's Peak "soon" but unable to commit to the plan because of some doubts (mostly regarding the wisdom of it for me). I hope to get some answers here in order to proceed, go elsewhere or something.

I am a hiker and not interested in, or knowledgeable about, technical climbing. I've been wanting to do a 14er for many years and have a fair idea of which ...
