Terminal Cancer chute, Ruby Mountains NV

Anyone seen it recently? How is the snowpack building up in the area? Will be there in mid-January so I know a ton can change in that amount of time, I was just curious as to how that area is filling in right now. I am not dead set on skiing it no matter what, but if the avy conditions are safe and it's filled in I just wanted to know if there was enough ...

Wheeler Peak Conditions - Thanksgiving Summit Attempt. 2014

I'll be driving up from Austin Tx for a summit attempt on Wheeler Peak. So far it looks likes the weather will be favorable and I'm wondering what the conditions of Bull in the Woods trail are, as well as any other information about the condition of the routes up to the mountain.

Thank you!

Lost/Left rope bag at base of Geronimo, Red Rock


I loaned rack, ropes, and rope bag to friends visiting from out-of-the-country last weekend, for climbing in Red Rock (near Las Vegas). They inadvertently left my rope bag (dirty green and black - I think it was a Metolius) at the base of Geronimo (Jackrabbit Buttress, Juniper Canyon). This would have been at the end of the day on Sunday, November 2.
If anyone saw it, grabbed it, or brought it to lost-and-found at ...

Permits to be required for groups in Grand Canyon

Groups of hikers and runners who want to do grueling excursions across the Grand Canyon will soon need a permit -- a move officials say will cut back on overcrowding, litter and safety issues at the popular tourist attraction in Arizona.

The permit requirement begins on Sept. 15 and involves any group that publicly advertises a trip from rim to rim...

The park has no limit on the number of one-day permits it will issue. ...

Lone Survivor Movie Scenery

First, I would rather not have a discussion about the movie or the politics surrounding it, if there are any. I am interested in the scenery.

I recently watch, "Lone Survivor", which was decent, but the scenery was fantastic. I figure that the super rugged scenes were filmed on the WEST (not east as originally and incorrectly written) side of the Sandia Mountains, as they did not look like the Sangres. Does anyone know or ...
