Re: dogs and gothics
Sadly, I have no experience hiking with dogs so I don't know what is or isn't necessarily dog-appropriate terrain, so... yeah, take my post with a few hard shakes of the saltshaker. On a...

Gothics
The Ascent of Gothics from the southwest is spectacular and fun, with log ladders, cables and etc. if the dogs are up for that. From there, the narrow saddle to Pyramid Peak is great as well (and a...
