Boulder - Mount Sanitas - Red Spur - Mallory Cave Trail
Per finire come 4 anni fà mi sono fermato una giornata a Boulder, magnifica cittadina vicino a Denver, Boulder è un posto che offre incredibili opportunità per fare outdoor, dal Trail running, Bouldering, climbing, mtb,... un infinità confronto al nostro Ticino. è una citta universitaria, quindi tutti sono giovani, in ogni...

Mount Sniktau trail
Dopo 2/3 ore di riposo, cambio assetto, scarpe da trail ecc., Ritorno a Loveland Pass, il vento è cresciuto, salgo la larga spalla del Monte, sembra uguale al Gazzirola, il vento ha raffiche di 80km/h, salgo veloce pensando di essere in Capriasca, dimenticando che sono subito oltre i 3800m, dopo venti minuti ne pago le...

Do they make crampons for dogs?
Since I'm still employed in Switzerland, I get the Swiss Holidays off at work even though I live in California. This has advantages and disadvantages. One of advantages is that on those Swiss Holidays almost nobody has the day off in the US and therefore, it's hardly ever crowded, neither on the roads nor in the mountains. If you...

Woods Lake a nice alternative start for a ski tour to Round Top
As you might have noticed by now, Round Top is one of my favorite goals in winter and summer. So far my starting point for this tour has always been Carson Pass. For back-country ski tours the section from Carson Pass to Winnemucca Lake is somewhat sub-optimal. The main reason is that this part is rather flat with only little gain...

Old Rag Mountain (996m)
Nachdem ich so viel Gutes über den Appalachian Trail in den USA gehört hatte, und ich zufällig in der Nähe war, wollte ich mir die Sache mal etwas näher anschauen. Für den gesamten, 3500km langen Trail reichte aber bei mir definitiv weder die Zeit noch die Lust. Eine lohnende Alternative schien mir daher die Besteigung des...

Pick me up at the Negro Bar
What sounds like a politically incorrect statement is what I told my wife the other day: "Can you pick me up at the Negro Bar?" However, I didn't go out to have a drink in a bar, but asked her to pick me up at the "Negro Bar" State Park, after I walked there from home. "Negro Bar" is the site which was mined by African...

Phipps Peak - A nice snowshoe & hike roundtrip from Emerald Bay
California's weather is currently influenced by a so-called "blocking high" off the Atlantic coast which brought us nice warm and sunny T-Shirt days down in the valley for almost all of December so far (and it doesn't look like it will change any time soon). Unfortunately this prevents the winter storms from rolling in and the...

Sun Rock - Stopgap in the Desolation Wilderness
Recently I discovered that the 4 peaks of the extended Crystal Range north of Rockbound Pass (Red -, Silver -, McConnel - and Tells Peak) have a relatively short access from west. The so-called "Ice House Road" from Kyburz to Loon Lake is a regular asphalt road and supposedly plowed all winter long too. The minor single lane...

Round Top: Normal Route from Carson Pass
Quick trip to the Sierra to check out the snow situation at Round Top. I should have brought my skis along, because there was more than plenty of the white stuff. Walked from Carson Pass to Winnemucca Lake to the saddle between The Sisters and Round Top and then via west ridge (snow free) to the top. Back the same way. (For...

Oops, I did it again
After last weeks outing to Flagstaff Hill, I actually didn't think I would go back to this mountain (ever) again, because there wasn't really much which was extremely attractive for a mountaineer like me. However, I kind of had to, because I lost something precious up there (most likely during the bushwhacking up to the summit)....
