Grand Canyon Pointers

Hey all, I'm planning a trip out west this summer and the plan is to hike rim to rim in the Grand Canyon. I have done a ton of hiking, however, I'm from New York; the Canyon is a totally different animal than the ADKs. With that said, I was just curious if anyone could offer any helpful advice-gear, trails, etc etc. Any info is appreciated! Merry Christmas and Happy Trails! Cheers!

Satellite views for recent DV snow coverage?

Folks have occasionally posted satellite views of the Sierra, so one can judge snow coverage. I'm interested in the area around Mount Palmer on the E side of Death Valley and near the CA-NV border. What is the best source for relatively recent, preferably higher-res photos?

Late April


I'm looking for a good hiking destination for late april 2011. What will conditions be like in Zion / Bryce / Grand Canyon? I know the road to the Grand Canyon North Rim will be shut but I understand backpacking into the canyon would be fine. Can you do Angels Landing at this time of year - is there any ice? (that may be a daft question - I really don't know!!!)

Texhoma Newbie

Hey, I just joined, and I'm kinda new to the whole camping/climbing scene. I live in the Texhoma area, and I was wondering if anyone around there would be willing to sort of train me. I have a few issues, but nothing that I'm not willing to work around. Please let me know.

Fatality in Red Rocks (NV)

Maybe I missed this discussion here, but if so, to repeat:
http://www.mountainproject.com/v/injuri ... /106971160

There was a fatality on a climbing route in RR during the holidays. In a separate incident, a hiker fell and injured his feet; the two accidents got confused in the newsfeeds for a bit.

Mt Charleston Conditions

I am planning to do some snowshoeing in the Kyle Canyon area tomorrow (11/27). From the reports I've looked at, seems to bet 10"+ on the mountain. Can anyone who has been up there this week provide a conditions report??

Grand Canyon north rim access?

Is route 67 still open all the way to the north rim? Would like to visit there soon but I have a hard time finding the road conditions?! AZ department of transportation is a lot more confusing than Caltrans.

Wheeler Peak -NM (Taos)

I am wanting to do Wheeler Peak on Friday the 5th... 3days from now.
The route looks like 16 miles roundtrip and maybe some snow on top.
This week the weather has been perfect and its supposed to be perfect on Friday as well.
Anyone in on this?
I've done 25 14'ers in Colorado and hike at a decent pace.
Send me email if you are in charleslybrand@hotmail.com
