Just curious of current conditions on Humphreys?

I'd prefer to go when most of the snow is melted, but wasn't sure how quick things melt out this way.

Was also curious about Navajo Mountain just across the borer in Utah.

Boundary Peak, NV late May

I get a few free days before and after a conference in Vegas in late May. Thinking about taking a shot at Boundary Peak either the weekend of May 18th or of May 25th. From past years' reports, looks like Boundary and Montgomery are often still snow and ice covered around then, but some years may vary. Anyone know what how the White Mountains are looking this year?

Las Vegas Climb/Hike


Will be in Vegas for a few days in early March and was hoping to find a nice easy / moderate climb within an hour or so of the city. I am a moderate hiker/climber and would like something challenging but not to crazy. Prefer something that can be done in half a day. I was looking at red rock and thought that would be nice. Any thoughts / suggestions/ comments would be appreciated. ...

Some of the trail will apparently be rebuilt or re-routed, but I am not sure to what extent. I have been hiking this trail for 20 years now, and in places it has degraded badly. My hope is they keep the rougher nature of ...
