    The Friends of Scotchman Peak Wilderness is leading a guided/group ascent of Scotchman Peak a couple weekends from now (Saturday, May 4). Unfortunately, I'm not sure I'll be healed up enough by then but looks fun for next year:

    Oh yeah, the terrain once you get up there is nuts..

    Here's some summer shots:

  4. This sounds like fun! If anyone wants to get in on this trip, let me know. I have climbed it during the dry season and the terrain looks promising...except that gnarly back side! Goat Peak area? I think the snow should hold on enough till then to make this a great trip; albeit a lung buster...

    Shane,
    First... Welcome aboard.. Glad to have you here!!! I would love to do this.. Not sure I can this year due to work as I am covering a larger area as a new person is trained and Mike is recovering from a bad injury he incurred in Dec (but healing nicely).

    I was up Lightening Creek and the N. aspect of Scotchman Pk. still has a 1000' line, I was surprised it ran for so long. Wish I had the time.
