Re: Routes
I found a couple shorter than 90 using the Cairn maps; I ordered both maps only to find out I had already purchased the South map a couple of years ago- now I have a spare :)

Re: 85?
the shortest I've found, but depending on snow, might not be doable???? peeked at snow pack for the Flathead and the Sun, both currently at 125% above normal- long ways to go though ^ sou...

Thanks all. Looks like Ken is going to take care of me w/ a pad- thanks a bunch Ken! Dave's site shows a couple of 40" wide pads, it's possible he'd cut one???? never though...

Want something to put under large x-therm, 25" by 1/8-3/8" thick I know Lawson used to, appears he's done w/ pads. GG sells a 40" pad in 1/4", but seems wasteful to cut...

I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...
