Mother Nature has not yet closed down the backcountry, and a few folks have taken advantage. Let's see your reports!

Here's mine from a week ago (PS- Notch Peak is highly recommended!):

Wow, that's some really cool stuff!

BTW - the beard is approaching Letterman-like proportions.

Had to shear the beard.
Passport is about to expire, and they want you clean shaven, no glasses, and NO SMILING!

Caught some super-clear air with Dave yesterday. Snowed last night. Good timing!

John: Your adventures are much appreciated!

As always, I'm a little jealous of those Nevada jaunts you & Tom have. I will mention, the old Hotel Ely downtown, is likely far more comfortable than the Motel 6, & I suspect cheaper, & far more interesting, but you do have to work through the casino & the smokers.

Notch Peak was fascinating. Our "old" friend Jim Donini did a technical route on that big face a couple years back. It sounded somewhat gripping.

North of Delta, I have spent time on Topaz Mountain. The fun there is, you get to look for Topaz crystals on the way to the summit & back. They are very reflective & can catch your eye with a significant sparkle from 40 feet away.

And! I enjoyed those icy photos of Snowslide Peak. I climbed one of those gullies on the right side of the North Face in the early 1980's, in summer dry conditions with Mark Mason. I think we brought a rope & gear, but didn't rope up.

Are you sure it was a Fisher and perhaps not one of these...?

That's just Splattski pre-shave.

Snuck over state lines and climbed a couple Colorado 14ers last week.

Nice report, SuperDave. Looks like a stellar day, despite the wind.

And now I see BoiseDoc just got up Spruce Mountain in Nevada.
