2019 mount rumble
The route finding is pretty obvious almost to the summit ridge. From Bombardment, you'll see a 45 degree gully cutting up Rumble's SW face. This is your route. Slog your way up this endless rock chute, stopping to examine or attempt some of the rowdy V0/V1 boulders along the way. You'll eventually approach an obvious notch to your left, just below the ridge. Walk directly up to it, then take a ledge to your right. This route bypasses some fun but unnecessary 3rd to 4th class scrambling up cliff bands. Gain the ridge and hit all the high points, because who knows if the summit register is in the right place. Bask in the glory of the shimmering ocean to the west and colossal glaciers to the east.
Coming back over Bombardment was the real test. I was totally worked by the second time I came over! And this time I opted to descend the scree further toward Pleasant instead of chop more steps. Good idea. I now know that most people use a far easier and sneakier way around the rock glacier... Next time!

Oregon - Umpqua National Forest - Rogue-Umpqua Divide Wilderness
Acadia day hike- Bald Peak, Parkman mtn, Gilmore peak, Sargeant Mtn, Cedar Swamp mtn. (Supposedly there is wreckage from a plane crash somewhere on the southern side of Cedar Swamp Mtn... I was not able to find it, but I hope you give it a shot). Try adding a big loop down the East side of Sargeant, around Jordan Lake or up Pemetic, then coming back to Cedar Swamp from Jordan Ridge or Jordan Cliffs trail if you want more mileage.

Adamant Range Mountain Resort
ARMR is a theoretical European-style ski resort in the pristine Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia. A brief description can be found below. For more information, please visit the Adamant Resort website!
The Canadian Rockies hold some of the best potential worldwide for the ultimate mountain resort based on geography and weather. After surveying mountains all over the continent (and the world) using topographical/slope steepness data and extrapolated precipitation patterns, this location was decided upon for its vertical drop, slope aspect (skiable slopes mostly face north instead of south), projected snowfall totals and snow quality, varied terrain, and natural beauty. The development is modeled after resorts like France's Les Trois Vallees, Italy's Via Lattea, and Austria's Kitzbuhel (KitzSki). Ski resorts like these, which feature many villages interconnected by expansive ski lift and trail systems, are virtually unheard of in North America (Utah's One Wasatch concept would be the first if it ever garners approval).
The proposed plan includes two large mountain villages (Everly and Loganville) and nine satellite villages; all eleven establishments are accessible by public transportation. The towns will encompass lodging, shops and eateries. All downtown areas are designed to be vehicle-free (in similar fashion to Zermatt) to add to the small-town ambiance and prevent congestion, but will have local transportation in the form of cable cars and buses to help move visitors around. Only full-time residents of the area will be allowed to have vehicles at all; vacationers will need to leave their vehicles in the parking lot in Donald and take the train (or arrive by plane or boat). A system of trains and trucks will move personal items between villages while patients ski during the day for those who are changing lodging accommodations. Some villages will have direct ski-in/ski-out access, and feature trails that weave right between the buildings. Small neighborhoods of custom homes will be available for permanent residents outside of each town and around the region based on demand. All buildings must meet pre-established architectural standards, and neighborhoods will be modeled after private communities like Martis Camp in California's Lake Tahoe region, The Colony in Park City, and Montana's Yellowstone Club. Each town will have a central architectural theme that models different areas of the world of skiing. The town of Everly will include a small college and a local hospital. Night-skiing will be available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays above the town of Everly on the Northeast aspect of Tabernacle Mountain. A scattering of luxury hotels and lodges can be found throughout the area, some of which are only accessible by ski lifts or helicopters. The resort will also feature a few golf courses. Two trams transport sightseers to the peaks of Adamant Mountain (10,974') and Mount Sir Sandford (11,545') for extraordinary views of the resort and surrounding mountain wilderness. Design and construction of all infrastructure, buildings, and ski lifts will be done in the spirit of environmental conservation to minimize impact, and the resort will develop renewable energy sources to work toward a zero net-energy presence.
Three large subranges of the Selkirks will be involved in the ski lift infrastructure. A sizable portion of the area is covered by snow year-round. Based on data collected for nearby Valemount Glaciers Resort, natural snowfall should easily be able to cover areas above 4,000'. Similarly, CMH's Adamant Lodge (which sits at an elevation of approximately 3,000') usually has adequate powder for winter activities. Artificial snowmaking will be used to cover slopes along Kinbasket Lake (where the lowest elevations can be found) when needed. Due to the sheer size of the resort, entire areas can be closed when snow coverage is spotty without really affecting the overall availability and diversity of terrain. The lift system was designed to add as much skiable area as possible. British Columbia is known for its glades skiing, and many forests will be left untouched (apart from lift construction) for those seeking a more natural experience. In addition, private cat-skiing will be available to guests who desire it; areas that are not lift-served will be open to these types of operations. A ski school will be located just outside of Kirkwood (Red Carpet and Snoopy's Park lifts) for beginners. Terrain parks are scattered throughout, including an area above Everly which will be open for night-skiing and competitions.
The region will become a tourist hotspot similar to nearby Revelstoke during the Summer, with activities such as mountain biking, hiking/backpacking, and boating on Kinbasket Lake. Backcountry and traditional camping will be available as well. Summer glacier skiing will be available in the Forbes Glacier Bowl above Vallee de la Cascade.
ARMR is far larger than any existing resort on Earth and includes a vertical drop that tops all but Chamonix. Relevant statistics for the entire establishment can be found below:
-Lift-Served Vertical = 9,002' [Cloud 9 Tram (11,496'), Sullivan Line (2,494')]
-Total Number of Lifts = 175
-Total Length of Lifts = 222.61 miles
Statistics regarding the ski area itself:
-Total Skiable Area (Approximate) = 161.22 square miles
-Lift-Served Vertical (Skiable) = 8,021' [Pioneer Lift (10,515'), Sullivan Line (2,494')]
-Largest Continuous Skiable Vertical = 7,930' [top of Pioneer Lift (10,515') to Down The Hatch to Newton's Theory to Corner Pocket to Valley Forge to Meadows to base of Swan Bay Connector (2,585')]
-Total Number of Ski Lifts = 171
-Total Length of Ski Lifts = 219.547 miles
-Total Vertical of Ski Lifts = 357,811 feet
-Total Number of Trails = 1,018
-Total Length of Trails = 1,021.556 miles
-Total Vertical of Trails = 1,244,714'
-Total Area of Inbound Glades = 8,171 acres
-Total Length of Night-Skiing Trails = 22.0 miles
-Total Length of Summer Glacier Skiing Trails = 9.89 miles
Projected costs for a project like this are immense, and the combination of lack of funding, government roadblocks, and competition from established resorts nearby basically guarantees that plans like this will never be brought to fruition. The principles on which it was designed, however, are replicable. If the North American ski industry ever has a chance of rivaling its European counterparts, resorts of this style will be what evens the playing field.
Disclaimer: I have never visited the area that this resort encompasses. All decisions made for where trails and lifts could be constructed were based on mapping software. The area is already used for backcountry skiing by Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH) and the Alpine Club of Canada, which both operate lodges here; claims from those organizations and personal accounts from their respective beneficiaries support the idea that this region has great potential for ski resort development.
I enjoy the White Trail at Adams Farm, but find the current trail marking confusing. My notes here are an effort to unscramble it for myself and then hopefully to help others.

Art Loeb Trail
Art Loeb Trail is a popular 30-mile hiking trail in Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina.
Art Loeb Trail
The Art Loeb Trail is one of the longer and more difficult trails in the state, and it's also one of the more popular. The trail serves as a memorial to Art Loeb, a former industrialist and activist from the Carolina Mountain Club, and a man who "deeply loved these mountains."
Traveling mainly along peaks and ridges rather than in the valleys, the trail offers many views along the way to its lofty high points. It skirts along the southwestern rim of the Davidson River valley, then skips across some of the highest peaks in the Black Balsam area before descending Cold Mountain to the Daniel Boone Scout Camp. It takes the hiker to some of the finest scenery to be found in Pisgah, and you'll view or cross many of the landmark mountains in the region.
Many folks use this trail for an extended backpacking trip (at least 3-4 days) and plenty of campsites along the trail will facilitate that kind of trip. Others use shorter sections of the trail for day hikes, or use connecting trails to form loops.

Azurite Peak via Methow River Trial 5/31/14
The plan was to day trip Azurite Peak Saturday May 31st. Josh Henderson had agreed to do this seldom climbed peak with me, I was glad someone was willing. I left Friday evening May 30th 2014 at 5:15 in the evening. Stopped in Lynnwood and picked Josh up and we off to the Methow River Trailhead (elevation 2,600 feet). I hit the hay at 10:15 in the evening. The next morning we got up at 4:15 and were on the trail hiking by 4:50am. At 1.5 miles a large avalanche debris field covered the trail. It took an extra 15 minutes to navigate this. After that just .5 miles up the trail the bridge across Trout Creek was damaged, not sure how much longer it will be there. If it goes out getting across the creek will be much more difficult especially early in the season. 8 miles in the Methow River Trail Joined the Pacific Crest Trail. We followed the PCT an additional 2 miles to the south. There is a cairn with a stick in it that marks the point where the Azurite Pass Trail joins the PCT (elevation 4,400 feet). Initially we missed the turn to Azurite Pass and ended up going about a quarter mile further to the Meebe Pass Trail. We realized the error and went back to the cairn with a stick in it.
It takes about 3.5 to 4 hours to reach the Azurite Pass trail from the Methow River Trailhead. We were on our way up the Azurite Pass Trail at 8:50am. We made quick work in getting up to Azurite Pass as it was snow covered above 5,000 feet. We reached Azurite Pass (elevation 6,700 feet) at 10:15 and took a little break. From there we simply followed the ridge to around the 7,600 foot mark and then began traversing. There is some good beta on summitpost as to how to find the hidden gulley. It can definitely be a little tricky but we found the gully which led to the summit gully. The summit gully was snow filled and the snow was just soft enough such that it did not require crampons. We made short work of it and we on the summit (elevation 8,400 feet) at 12:20 in the afternoon. The views were perfect and the wind was nearly nonexistent. We enjoyed the well earned summit for about an hour and then at 1:20 began the decent down. We took our time and were back the PCT by 3:30. At the PCT we took a nice 15 minute break and then began the 10 mile trek out of there. We kept a decent pace and were back to the trail head at 7:40 in the evening.
Azurite Peak stands at 8,400 feet and is the 78th tallest peak on the Bulger Top 100 list. It was the 85th peak I have completed on the list and was Josh Henderson's 56th peak on the list. Trip stats from Methow River Trailhead to Azurite Peak summit, round trip: 24 miles, 6,800 feet of elevation gained.

Baker CD Route - Forecast 1
Practice itinerary for intermediate glacier class for forecast 1
WX: Bluebird day, moderate temps, no precip, no wind
AX: Considerable: Windslabs on NW to NE Slopes at/above treeline
Day one - Move to coleman demming high camp making sure to stay on the ridge before gaining the coleman glacier (avoiding the terrain trap gully). On the coleman move to the camp following the easiest line. Heads up on steeper north facing sections, taking the alternative route west and up if unstable/ signs of windslab.
Day 2 - From the camp near the ridge, follow the coleman glacier up navigating around any possible crevasses and staying clear of north facing slopes. Heads up when gaining the plateau between colfax peak and the deming glacier, checking in before moving up small section of steep NW terrain to gain a flat saddle (runnout may be terrain trappy with crevasses). Move towards the deming glacier and follow the ridge up till the roman wall to gain the summit.
Descent: retrace the ascent making sure to avoid steeper sections of NW face and crevass terrain traps.
Baker CD Route - Forecast 2
Practice itinerary for intermediate glacier class for forecast 2
WX: Cloudy, snow throughout day, expect 3-6 inches
AX: Moderate: Storm slabs on all aspects/elevations
Day one - Move from heliotrope ridge trailhead to coleman demming high camp making sure to stay on the ridge before gaining the coleman glacier (avoiding the terrain trap gully). On the coleman move to the camp following the easiest line. Heads up on steeper north facing sections, taking the alternative route west and up if unstable/ signs of windslab or camping at the alternative low camp to let the snow stabilize overnight or if conditions are whiteout.
Day 2 - From camp, follow the coleman glacier up navigating around any possible crevasses and giving some heads up to steeper slopes. Heads up when gaining the plateau between colfax peak and the deming glacier, checking in before moving up small section of steep NW terrain to gain a flat saddle (runnout may be terrain trappy with crevasses). From the flat saddle check in with the team regarding conditions on the summit push as steeper sections are likely to slide and could be consequential given cliffs and potential crevasses (potentiall worth unroping?). Gain the ridge between the coleman and deming glaciers moving up towards the roman wall then to the summit.
Descent: retrace the ascent making sure to avoid steeper sections of face and crevasse terrain traps.
Major notes: be careful with white out on route
