Re: 2014 Bob Marshall Wilderness Open: Marias Pass to Monture Creek
For those of us who don't raft, the route I came up with is about 125 miles, with (at least) five potentially serious crossings. I'd like to participate again, but I haven't decided yet...

Re: Yosemite Falls & Eagle Peak, November 23-24
Still looks beautiful out there. No snow on the ground and overnight lows in the 30's this week. One more week 'til this trip!

Re: MLD Duomid vs. Supermid
Maybe Chris S will chime in. He's >6 ft and has mentioned to me that his Duomid is too short unless he sleeps in it diagonally.

Re: Heavyweight Ultralight Backpack
Andy, that's an awesome idea. I wonder if we could piece together a route to Ionian that avoided avalanche danger? They close the road to Wishon at the Dinkey Creek bridge, but I bet you could ...
