    Symbol error. Somebody added "Inter" before "State Route 6." Amusing, though, in light of the public dialogue about the "East-West Highway."

    Well, winter comes right after Halloween, so I always pack a few of those tiny chocolate bars that the trick-or-treaters didn't get. Just pop them in my mouth and let them melt until chewable.

    Reading this entire thread just now, I couldn't help but think about how fantastic the Saddleback people are. The ski patrollers recommend which trails we should climb, and the only thing they ask is...

    I have an old (1981) photo from Bigelow in January that shows some of my gear at the time:

    Wool balaclava
    Wool shirt (heavy, black & red check)
    Wool pants (Green, "army" type)
    Wool socks,...

    Another vote for the Microspikes--although, in fairness, I haven't tried the Hillsounds. My crampons are complete overkill (M-10s), so I only carry them when I'm going to be doing significant...

    A few years ago we were shut out of a Russell Pond trip on Memorial Day weekend because of snow and high water. Since this was a heavy snow year, it's possible the situation may be repeated.

    Yvon, les Bigelows sont magnifique! A great choice for a 115 finish. In fact, a great choice for a hike, period! Give yourselves enough time to enjoy them.

    Oh, it's started already. I nominate "comment sections after news articles" for worst tech innovation of the last 50 years.

    TEO, I don't recommend throwing yourself off a ledge. In the time it takes your body to fall, the bugs will have totally consumed it. :eek:

    I think you're probably right about that, Audrey.

    Forgot to mention that the ski conditions were very good. The snow was excellent, and the visibility was improved enough below treeline that it...

    Saddleback 2/20--better for skiing

    Able to grab a day "off", I decided to climb Saddleback and the Horn with my friend Shrink Rap. The weather forecast was good, with summit temps in the teens and a mostly clear day. Well, it was...
