Sucks hard about your ankle Zack. Injuries are no fun.

1000 Island Bear on 08/30/2009 22:36:29 MDT Print View

I ran into a ranger that warned me about a bear(s) that was making rounds at 1000 Islands and Garnet. I pushed on to Ruby that day and had a bear free night. Actually, I never saw a single bear! :(

p.s. Inyo National Forest has some hot female rangers! :P

SHR; Alpine Col or Snow Tongue Pass? on 09/04/2009 21:37:44 MDT Print View

Also, we used Alpine Col route as we went over Piute Pass to resupply. I know that Snowtongue Pass is a little sketchy.

Dave T., I am looking at doing my second section of the SHR next year and am debating which pass to do, Alpine Col or Snow Tongue Pass. I hear that Alpine is very difficult due to talus and Snow Tongue can be difficult due to a steep snow field. I have been over Frozen Lake Pass and found it to be a little intimidating at first, but very doable with patience. I am not very experienced in steep snow descents, nor do I have crampons or an ice ax, so I am leaning more towards Alpine. Do you have any advice on Alpine Col?
