    Nice Chris. Was just about 11 years ago (June 2002) when I first saw you drop that S. Time flies. Still miss those adventures

    … and that badass mountain dog Sierra

    ps: didn’t a wise man once say that “Tufa shots are so played out…” 🙂

    This is just an awesome photo. Beautifully composed. well done. This could be somewhere in Tibet with the high peaks and snowline creeping down towards the desert valley.

    Awesome shots Dan. Not sure what i’ll do if toby ever gets a new jacket. i won’t recognize him (except for the ubiquitous buddy). Those two are the epitome of consistency — getting after it in all seasons, check. Rad lines, check. Dog who slays it, check. Green patagucci jacket, check!

    dude you are gnarly. i love the sufferfests, solo even. tres impressive.

    pretty sure that big pointy peak is Mt. Clarence King. My pal Misha put up a first ascent on that beautiful ridge facing the camera.

    there were tracks on that snow field in the middle going up to the crest.
    looks like a sweet line.

    This is a GREAT beta shot for Scimitar Pass. Pretty high at 13.5K’, but looks like a nice route to get to the back of sill.

    Preparing for the descent:

    Is that a goiter growing out of that dude’s head?

    Heading down tommorrow to do something w/ a couple buddies. Don’t know what yet. Craters Crest? hmmmm….decisions, decisions.
    TR coming soon.

    I hit Crater Crust–er, Crest the day before Langley. Snow was marginal, but may have softened a bit in the couple of sunny days.

    Dan, thanks for posting the pics. BTW: here’s that TR I was telling you about concerning that nice little piece of granite across the valley.

    Very nice shot there. Not really southern sierra. More right in the middle. The big expanse is Humphreys Basin, with Humphreys on the left and Four Gables on the bottom. Middle is the glacier divide, with the Goethe cirque most prominent near the right side of pic (with all the sweet coolies coming down). Flat thing in the middle of the pic is the Keyhole Plateau, with Lamarck behind it. Then going straight up in a line is Darwin and then Fiske behind it. Goddard near top right. Awesome spots. Wish I was there.

    dude! sketchville! 😯

    btw: that peak is not triple divide. It is Seven Gables. I was out to Seven Gables in mid-may last year. Insane difference in snow conditions this year, even in MARCH!

    And as far as snowmo access I think you can travel on any national forest road that is closed for winter.

    FYI, not all USFS roads are automatically open for snowmobiling.

    Thanks for posting Dave.

    Looks like a pretty good proposal and trade off. I think for anyone doing sled accessed bc riding, it might not be so good of a trade off becasue of the restrictions to the nipple and other areas around the divide. I’m sure the jibbers and bc kicker crews will be upset.

    PJ, there are no restrictions under the proposal on accessing the Nipple via Blue Lakes road. You just can’t use Forestdale road to do so when there is sufficient snow along BL road. I think everyone is freaked out that this limits snowmo opportunities, but it doesn’t. It just divvy’s it up more sanely. Both interest groups agree and support it. The main thing here from a non-motorized perspective is that it provides one mellow approach free of noise and fast moving vehicles, and cuts off the temptation for machines to access the bowl at the head of forestdale creek (which is in the Mok’ wilderness area in any event and thus verboten to vehicles)

    just open it in photoshop, and choose “Image > Flip Horizontal” and you’ll have them skinning in the correct direction.
