    Summer is here in the Eastern Sierra and we couldn’t be happier to be able to get into the mountains and start climbing on the routes that make this range famous. With the heatwave sweeping across California, the snow has been melting quickly and the...

    If you are still fired up to ski the backcountry, the Sierra Nevada is living up to it’s name this spring. Read this definition for the name of our favorite mountain range, the Sierra Nevada:  In 1776, Pedro Font's map applied the name to the range...

    The last few weeks have been nothing short of incredible. Incredible skiing, incredible (incredulous?) storm hype, incredible winds, and again… incredible skiing. Tired of this overused adjective already? Read on, we’ll get more creative I promise. The week following the Feb. 18-20 storms was all time....

    I spent the past two days climbing out in Lee Vining Canyon with my good friend Dave to celebrate the Super Bowl by smashing up some ice and freezing our tails off! No, neither of us really cared much about the super bowl this year,...

    We’re back for another Eastern Sierra Ice Report. It’s been a few weeks and a few things have changed here in the Eastern Sierra. We have had a few snow storms hit the range that have kept our snowpack interesting but even more interesting is...

    Well we had a nice start to our ice climbing season at the beginning of December but some warm weather has made things a bit more interesting and a bit more grim? Hopefully the holiday season can bring us some nice cold temperatures and some...

    Philip and I met for coffee the morning following our three day adventure into the Royce Lakes basin of Pine Creek. We have climbed together in various mountainous areas across the U.S for over a decade and share the commonality of two loves: the love of...

    I just had the pleasure of guiding Rob on the final peaks of his 6 year quest to climb all of the Fourteeners in the Contiguous United States, via the classic Palisade Traverse from Thunderbolt Peak to Mount Sill. Rob has been a life-long climber,...

    The summer solstice is here, but summer still feels like a long way off.  Some of our local spots on the east side of the Sierra have road closures or roads are just barely getting ready to open for the season.  This is due to...

    This is a summary of snow conditions, the overall avalanche situation and road access in the Eastern Sierra at the beginning of May 2023. Winter is on the retreat in the Sierra. The massive amount of snow we received is giving way to spring at lower...

    Snow. It is the leading topic of conversation among winter recreationalist, and this year even more so. While we are often worried about the lack of storms as we navigate dry winters, this year is one for the record books and there is no sign...
