  1. I am planning on hiking Kings Peak Utah this August. I plan to camp out a couple of days, maybe at Dollar Lake. I read on one site that the NPS requires a Bear Container for food. Does anyone know if this is true? I couldn't find it anywhere else.
    I don't want to show up and get kicked out or fined. Alan Z NY

  2. If there is then i didn't know anything about it? I hiked it with a two over night stay and didn't see a bear our bear signs. Moose was the only problem as they wander around the trails so beware of them.

    I found information on summitpost.org about bear canisters but they arratently confused Kings Mountain with the King Range in California which requires canisters along the beaches as well.

    Check out: http://www.wilderness.net/index.cfm?fuse=NWPS&sec=thingstoconsider. It states bear canisters are recomended (not required) for use in bear country.

    Can anyone suggest a guide for Boundary Peak in NV? I want to climb it the first few days of September, but my wife doesn't like me to climb alone anymore.

    I am tentatively planning to hike Boundary in Sept., but I have never done it.
    However, I am planning to go with a fellow highpointer that has done it. We have not finalized any plans. I cannot do it the week end of Sept. 17 -20, and the other guy is currently out of the country.

  5. An ethics question...I climbed Marcy yesterday. Visibility at the top was 20-30 ft, with gusty winds. I spent about 15 minutes there. From what I could see, it went down on all sides. At the bottom I mentioned I didn't see the plaque. This bugged me more and more. After several hours, I consulted summit photos and uploaded videos from others--on clear days. Studying those, I realize I was about 100 feet from the true summit, and no more than 5 feet vertical off. So, does it count???

  6. If you think it counts, it counts. If you don't then that's your decision too.

  7. Boundary peak can be approached from CA or NV. I would like to sleep (camp) as high as possible. Which is the best route?

  8. Definitely from the Ca. side.

  11. I'm planning a trip to Borah Peak in Idaho early-mid August. Has anyone been there recently? Ice Axe? Crampons needed?

    Thanks
