    The one time I parked there (I think either 2014 or 2015) I got there on a frigid NOV SAT AM around 6. I had read it was $1 to park but garage/store was still closed and I didn't see any obvious...

    Does anyone still take the actual Ammo Trail out of the official parking lot or do they either park at Base Station or walk the road? It's only like 0.6 miles or something and maybe 200' of elevation...

    I thought the fee box was attached to the side of the Cog building? Is it possible no one sees it so they have a temporary post in a cinder block or something and they put down in the lot during...

    I know very little about rock climbing but was surprised to see that they didn't have knots at the end of the ropes. Isn't that "rock climbing 101"? In the annual Accidents in Climbing book (drawing...

    I know every year there is an auction for old AMC trail signs, which usually go at pretty hefty price tags. Does anyone know if there is someone out there who makes replica signs like these for a...

    Wow. She is a pretty prominent climber too. I've seen her in several North Face spots. Sounds like she was extremely lucky with the crowd that was around.

    Thanks for the info and link! I've done some basic reading and goofed around with the "scene" modes on the camera but they didn't really do what I expected. Will be my Winter "project" learning how...

    Thanks for the clarification. The blurb I saw on the news definitely made it seem like we were talking about campsites and popular hiking areas. I guess they sensationalized the story and they got...
