Thinking about doing my annual jaunt to the Elfin Lakes this weekend. Any recent reports on the road to the parking lot? It's all clear, I hope?

Yeah it's definitely doable. You don't have to be an marathon runner to do it either. Most I've ever done was a half marathon, and I nursed my legs for days afterwards. Yet I've done Panorama as a...

Looks awesome! Thanks for the condition update.

Although is it just me, or when I clicked on this post, it was titled "Mt. Bishop" on the main list?

I've thought about this a lot as well. Could this have happened to me? Quite possibly, yes. I've been up there a couple of times, which I suppose leads to a feeling of false confidence.

Plus, as...

I checked out the bridge today. It does feel like I could reach the Alder Flats campsite faster this way, as it bypasses some of the more technical stuff on the West Canyon side. 4-5 hours for the...

I find it interesting that while the bugs are insane on some peaks, they aren't too bad on other peaks nearby. I was up Brunswick this past Sunday and the bugs were tolerable (and I'm usually a...

I was up there this past Sunday. It's completely snow-free all the way to the summit. There's a bit of snow on the back side of Brunswick, so it's pretty awesome to stand on the saddle and feel the...

My turn to ask a question: Anyone know what the Elfin Lakes parking lot is like these days? Is it bare, or is it still being plowed?

Practically summer on Elk Mountain. I didn't bother continuing on to Thurston, but the snow would be patchy at best, if any still existed.

I couldn't find a single patch of snow on the way up to...

I kind of want to say that L is Gabbro, but I'm not entirely sure.

I also feel like Osprey should be in there somewhere. Maybe H?

Moderate meaning relatively non-technical, correct?
