Gabb. This event is rated up to RCK 2, MTN 2 and SIG 2, but members of a variety of abilities will be considered since many routes are are SIG 1 or RCK 1.

    Rick Sorry to back out of the epic trip) but after hiking in with a pack today(only 1/2 way) just not feeling like getting to base camp( with gear) is in the cards for me. Today felt a little on the cool side(more than Sunday) on the plus side the trail head parking had lots of room.

    planning to leave Saturday am. I welcome anyone interested in leaving Saturday morning to ride up with me. I am planning to spend Saturday night car camping in the area. Sunday planning to move some basic camping stuff approx. 1/2-3/4 the way in to basecamp and camp close to the Little lakes trail before the off trail path to Treasure lakes . Hike back to trailhead Monday and bring in the rest of my gear later Monday or early Tuesday .The idea being to carry a couple of lighter loads with a few extra comfort items(mostly food) for the 5 days.

    Hello . Excited to be RSVP ed Planning on going for the whole week. Thinking of driving up Saturday and camping close to trailhead Then possibly on the trail in for Sunday then back to trailhead Monday (wanted to check in with the trip leaders about that.) . Looking forward to meeting everyone. Would love to meet up with any club member before the trip for a local hike/jog /bike as I am new to the club .Done a fair amount of rock climbing in the past but would not hurt me to a little local gym or outdoors climbing if any one is interested. I have not been to Auburn Quarry yet and would love to go there walk in and climb some. I live near Cameron Park but drive into
    Folsom and Sacramento almost daily

    All - if you are on the "want a spot" list please put your name instead on the interest list on the SMC website for this EPIC event! http://www.sierramountaineeringgroup.org/events/206/ricks-epic-trip-ii-bcs-dade-abbott-mills-gabb-treasure

    I can't believe I'm going to miss the epic this year. Sorry Rick. Work is just not going to let it happen.

    April 24, 2014

    • Rick B.

      Well, ol' pard, I know how it is, and we'll all miss your enthusiasm!

      April 24, 2014

  • Rick B.

    Ok, guys, let's start this over again. Perhaps I jumped the gun a little with the RSVPs. My plan is to RSVP climbers that plan to stay for the entire trip, first. I will RSVP others that may come for part of the time only if special plans are made. Otherwise, it is too difficult to plan for logistically and for permit reasons. I would like to give everyone a chance, so please, if you put your name on the interest list, please send me an email telling me of your plans and climbing experience, if I haven't had the pleasure of climbing with you before. Thanks to all for your interest!

      Sorry, Rick. Don't use a spot on me, I'll come up on my own for a day or two.

      April 24, 2014

    • Rick B.

      Guys, I'd love to have you.

      April 24, 2014

  • Art

    Rick, I didn't know how to indicate this on the SMC website, I will only be able to make it for a couple of days. Don't waste a whole spot on me - just tell me your climbing and camping plans when the time approaches, and I will come join you guys when I can.

    April 23, 2014

    • Brad

      Rick, Art, I was actually thinking the same thing. I might head in Thursday.

      April 24, 2014

  • Rick B.
