Thanks everyone! I'll be plowing thru it. Just missed 5 PT sessions due to a really nasty chest cold, but back at it again now today. Thankfully somehow, I lost very little progress.

Re: New Year's Day

Hi! It's me again. Regretfully informing you all that I will not be hosting a New Year's Peak Bag party on Jan 1st, 2023. My left knee got replaced on October 11 and I doubt I'll even be on a trail yet by then. The surgery was originally scheduled for July, but had to be postponed due to several iss...

Re: Trailhead vehicle(s)

Don't really have a choice about what vehicle I park at a TH. I only have one. I do worry about theft, especially if I'm on a road trip where all of my gear is in the vehicle. Not much I can do. I've got locking lugs, locked hitch, everything locks inside, factory alarm. Thought about a kill switch ...

Re: The Free Climb King

So my dumb question is: When you free solo like that and you're alone and you don't at least carry any rope with you, do these guys really down climb to get back down????

Re: so long AZ and THANK YOU HAZ!

You will be missed around here! Looking forward to Triplogs from the Sierras! Make time to visit over New Year's next year, I should be having the Annual Hike next year if things go well and as scheduled in July.

Apparently not on November 25, 1988. They did Grant Hill, Webb and Grandview Peaks!

Re: Mt Graham Fatality

I thought the Swift Trail was closed in the winter, at least the back side? It used to be that it didn't open until like March or April 15th?

@SuperstitionGuy
There was a study done a while ago and one of the findings of the study found that Mountain Goats like to hang around people because people deter Mountain Lions, the No. 1 predator of Mountain Goats and their kids.

@AZOutdoorsman is a member here. I think he's done some guiding in the past. You might message him and see if he's still doing that.

Re: See which 10 national parks had the most search and rescues in recent years

I wonder if a lot of Arches, was heat related. I'm sure quite a few were, in GCNP as well. We rescued a Hiker a few years back in Zion who was still a LONG way from his vehicle at 10:00 at night. He'd only taken one bottle of water with him and had run out 3 hours before. In the shape he was in when...

Re: New Year's Day

@chumley Thank You. I just need to get off the sidewalks and canal banks and get on a lot more uneven ground. Even though I'm doing a lot of balance work and ankle work in PT, just doing Brown Hill made both ankles and feet pretty sore. As much as I'd like to drive somewhere cool and get some scene...

Re: New Year's Day

I've made the tough decision to not host the New Year's Day Peak Bag this year. As much as the mind is willing, the knees just are not ready yet. I'm probably heading into 2022 with the probability that the other knee will need to be replaced as well. It really has not liked the extra load that has ...

New Year's Day

Just in case anyone is wondering, I'm still on the fence about hosting the Annual New Year's Day Peak Bag. I have yet to do a Peak, even a small one, but hope to get one in this week to see how it goes. I'm not worried about the "up". Just about the "down". Just going down a stee...

Re: Favorite Approach Shoe?

The problem I have with buying shoes and boots is that I need to be able to try them on. Between the brands, my shoe size and comfort varies too widely. It's almost impossible to just order them online and have them fit right. Then it becomes a PITA to do returns and all of that.

Re: Favorite Approach Shoe?

I'm using the La Sportiva TX Guides for Off Trail stuff and once I broke them in, they were almost, almost as comfortable as the Camp 4's. Very sticky rubber also. Once my Camp 4's are retired, I'll probably use these for dry technical canyons as well.

Re: Mindless chit chat

Lost a tree, a bunch of limbs, cactus and shrubs in Scottsdale Thursday night. Also sections of fence and our 4 year old roof leaked into the living room. If this hadn't been Arizona, I would have thought Tornado for 45 minutes. Have never seen that severe of a wind ever in AZ. And I've been through...
