Conditions on Mount Sill/ Polemonium

Hello, I am making a trip on June 20 to Mount Sill and Polemonium Peak. I am planning to take the South Fork trail and go up the North Couloir of Mount Sill, then traverse along the ridge to Polemonium. One of our party has never done Sill, so we will do Sill on the return, if time permits. What do you think the snow conditions will be in June? The normal route, to access ...

Sequoia-Kings Canyon, Large Group Dining

Our Boy Scout Troop is looking for a location to have a celebratory dinner after 6 days on the trail in July. I called the Peaks Restaurant but they said they won't be able to support a group of 30. They put me on to the Wuksachi Lodge Event Coordinator who can book a conference room which they use for Weddings etc, with options for a Buffet or a set Menu.

I'm looking for suggestions ...

Solo Day Climb (CA, AZ, UT)

Evening/Morning/Arvo (or whatever time it is over there!),

The conference is in Anaheim, but I’ve told work they can go get stuffed if they think I’m going to the US without heading east into the mountains for a few days (must do’s are Death ...

Last of my 14er guidebooks

Sorry for the spam, but as some of you know, I wrote a guidebook for California's 14,000-foot peaks last year ( http://drdirtbag.com/book/ ). I only have 10 or so copies left, and am unlikely to print more anytime soon, so if you want one, now's your chance.

Shasta snowmobilers -- help inquiry

Are any snowmobilers based at Mt.Shasta interested in taking a few climbers from Bunny Flat trailhead to the OSB trailhead? The Old Ski Bowl road is projected closed a while longer.

If so, please message me privately to discuss details that would make this worth your while. It's just climbers + packs, no skis.

This would be in April.

Thanks!

P.S. Yes, I know it's just ~2.5 miles between the two trailheads. Also, we're passing ...
