It isn't bad as far as technically challenging, until you look down and realize that it is only you, clinging to rock, and air.

Re: 2018 Hazolutions

2017 was all about Kilimanjaro. With that big one checked off I don't really have any long term hiking goals. I was also able to hit 1k in miles for the first time so that is off the docket too. Only thing I have been able to come up with is to focus more on the quality of the hikes rather than the ...

Bagging all peaks along Superstition Mountain

It is hard for me to do much of anything if I am not actively trying to work towards a goal. With Kilimanjaro in my rear view mirror, and the end of the year fast approaching, I wanted something new to focus on in the coming year (or years). I decided I wanted to tag every peak along Superstition Mo...

Re: Superstition Peak 5057 Loop via Hiero, AZ :: Question by damacias71

@damacias71 There is a nice spot where you come up from the southern side of the ridgeline and reach a saddle with a head on view of Weaver's. My last ridgeline trip there was a firepit built there. I wish I could provide more specifics to this location but you'll know it when you pass through it a...

Knock on wood but I've never experienced a failure either. I have had a few DOA right out of the package though.

La Sportiva Ultra Raptor's for under $50

I love these shoes. I originally purchased them back in December '16 for $130 from REI and are definitely worth that price. https://www.rei.com/product/848243/la-sportiva-ultra-raptor-trail-running-shoes-mens Fast forward to now and about 700 miles on them I figured I would go pick up a new pair.

Re: I will pay you $ name your price to help

As far as downloading a track to follow, I just downloaded the official Paria track, Split it in two, and was able to load the entire track to my phone without problem I'll have to figure out how to do this. While I am no expert using it, it was a very short learning curve for me just by playing ar...

Re: 2017 Hazolutions

2016 was a good year; increased my overall mileage while decreasing my AEG (which was contributing to injury); I managed to hit 52 unique hits; first completely solo conquering of Mt. Whitney; I had lots of fun exploring new places; managed to keep the injury bug at bay with the exception of Februar...

Re: Mining Camp Parking

I feel for Sam, who made this his daily beater, but I don't really think I will miss it. If I want it, I'll go to that alternative parking area, or something. I still hit it once or twice a week but have definitely pulled back from it this year compared to years past. I ponied up for an annual pass...

Humphreys and then Bright Angel 9/10 - 9/11

I am definitely not the most traditional kind of guy (how many of us are?!) and for my bachelor party weekend I wanted to do something outside of the box. All of my wedding party is out of state and thus I was going to head to the Sierras to wander aimlessly by myself. But after a little thought I c...

Re: That one hike.

I'd have to say the very first hike I ever went on; Peralta to Fremont Saddle back in the spring of 2012. I just remember being in awe of Weaver's. I hadn't heard much about it (having moved to the area from the east coast just over a year prior) and had only seen a pic or two of it. But wow! In per...
