    Lions Head rock slide...

    I saw on the MWAC IG there were two rockfalls from the Lions Head yesterday. According to the post they were about 5 minutes apart and each lasted 20-30 seconds, shaking the ground at the first aid...

    Thank you all for the advice. I did a fair amount of Winter camping a long time ago and would like to get back into it in some form without the expense of a -20+ down bag and four season tent.
  4. Winter bag for Grey Knob and the huts...

    Does anyone hear stay at the AMC huts or Grey Knob during Winter? Would a down bag rated to 0 F be sufficient for "average" Winter temps? I stayed at Grey Knob years ago with a -30 bag I used to have...

    Two way radios..

    I’ve been thinking about getting a couple of two way radios for hiking. Does anyone here use them and how well do they work in the Whites?

    We're going to stick to Hale. Hopefully we'll get a window of dry conditions between Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon.
  9. Anyone going hiking during the heat wave?

    Heading up on Wednesday. We were going to do Monroe but it looks like ideal conditions for hypothermia above tree line so were probably going to something more conservative like Hale. I don't think...

    I don't remember it being that dark in there at all. I was a little relunctant at first, but it was really not that different than sleeping in a large tent. The weather was nice enough that we...

    It certainly was. I found another pic looking up into one of the caves that gives you a better idea of size.

    This was from January '95 between Adams and Jefferson. We came across these caves and used them. Best night sleep I've ever had Winter camping. We assumed they were made on a guided Presidential...

    I bought a pair of Scarpa Invernos in 1992 and wore them ice climbing and on overnights and day hikes up until last year. Great boots that held up very well. The plastic around one of the eyelets...

    Poles had saved me more than once. I really like the Lasportiva Ultra Raptors on slippery terrain.

    Sorry I left that out. More than likely a one day but I haven't ruled out an overnight at Imp. If it's an overnight I think starting at Pinkham makes the most sense.

    I'm planning on doing a Wildcat, Carter and Moriah traverse this June and I was wondering if there was any preference on which direction to go in. Thanks.

    The lower part was hard packed with a bunch of frozen post holes. It looked like no one had hiked it in awhile. That spot above Upper Bruin had some heavy drifts that definitely slowed us down. I...

    We went up Valley Way yesterday and made it to somewhere between Upper Bruin and the Airline Cutoff before we turned around. We had planned on going to the hut but there were 50+ mph winds with...

    I climbed Willey's Slide on Saturday and the weather was outstanding. The ice had a lot of water under the surface which made things interesting. Tons of snow on the descent through the woods.

    For what it's worth I drove by Zealand Rd. on Saturday afternoon and there were lots of cars parked across the street and what looked like a large group of people hiking in. I bet if you called AMC...
