Re: Indian Heaven Crest (northern section) - 10/6/19

Here's another angle on that rock from a hike I did 6-29-15. I went up there to see if I could climb it but chickened out. There is some foliage to grab but it was too much for me at the time. Spiderman Bosterson maybe!!

Thanks for the comment. It was truly a wonderland up there and I wish I could have explored more.

Re: Lemei Rock & Lake Wapiki Sept 30 (!!)

Nice, Don. I'm assuming that you didn't climb Lemei Rock in the snow. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I guess it is now going to be full soggy season in IH when that snow melts. It was still well below freezing for most of the hike. The final couple of miles as we were on our way back the wind calmed, the ...

Lemei Rock & Lake Wapiki Sept 30 (!!)

This amazing cold snap turned what would normally be a very nice hike into a wonderfully scenic and snowy adventure. The plan was to drive up the Wind River Hwy then up over the north side of the Indian Heaven area via road 30 and 24 and then into Trout Lake. After staying overnight, we planned to h...

Re: Jumbo Peak - 2019-10-12

John, Thanks for the TR and info on access. I'll have to give the new route a try. The "wedge shaped mountain", ≈5,620' el. is on listsofjohn.com as Sofibida Peak. I climbed it on Sept. 8th 2015 after doing Jumbo Peak. I don't know how it got that name and haven't found any other reference for it. H...

Re: GPS Beacons?

I have a Spot and carried it for a while but it is useless in canyons and near cliffs/deep forest cover. I'm off-trail a lot and even a couple hundred feet off is way too much if I really need to be rescued from the places I tend to go hiking/exploring. Spot was off by a mile or more at times and us...

Re: Gorton Creek 08/22/2019

I did this route twice post fire and there is only about a half mile or less of completely obliterated trail. The switchbacks off the ridge are the worse due to small trees down over the trail and some brush. Here is a track from a June '18 trip: http://www.fototime.com/AA09D84CA65CA15/xlarge.jpg Th...
