Old Man Mountain (SE Slope)
















Let's take a shot at the Old Man!

We've all seen this peak from I80 and it's been said it resembles half dome in miniature. Let's go check it out. This climb is open to all skill levels and is a non-technical class 3. Elevation gain is approximately 1800 ft and there's at least one river crossing. Our drive in to the trailhead on Fordyce Lake Road will require that we use high-clearance 4WD vehicles.



RSVP's for this event open on Tuesday, October 8th @ 8:00 pm.

This is a privately organized event unaffiliated with SMC.

      Crossing Fordyce conditions depend on how PGE is moving water on a given day. On a lucky day you will be able to boulder hop across. More likely you will be at least ankle deep.

      Yep, be prepared to get wet. It may be our best option (sandals, light weight shoes, trekking poles, that sort of thing).

      ah Wayne, I can't get to Davis to meet you. I am currently not driving. I will have to drop off so that other people can go.

    Sorry guys; I have an opportunity to do some roped stuff (which I haven't done for a while), so I'll go with that instead. I really hope to catch up some time!

    Alright guys, good to see everyone is hanging in there for this one. I checked the RSVP comments and it looks like we'll have three vehicles available for this trek. My Durango, Waide's pickup, and Stefan's Subaru Forester.
