Bob Burd's Sierra Travels

Last Updated: Wed Sep 17 22:26:38 2014

While I still favor the Sierra Nevada, I can no longer claim to only stray now and then. I'm running out of the higher peaks in the Sierra, so I end up rambling about other parts of California as well as nearby states. If you're interested in a particular peak, they are listed in chronological order below, but not all peak names appear if you try to do a search. There is an alphabetized list below that has all of the peaks listed, just select the letter of interest. Almost all of my hiking/scrambling/climbing involves dayhikes of varying durations, some more than 20hrs in length. This is all part of a somewhat haphazard effort to show that any peak in California can be dayhiked given enough determination. That, and I happen to like hiking - a lot. :-)

Thanks Mr. Burd, for the great and well-detailed report on climbing Shastina from this route, which is very hard to find. It will be a great help, when I climb it, for the first time, this Saturday (9-20-14)! If I could, I wanted to ask if you have any special advice, for this time of year, and also if you have ever considered/done a climb up to it, from Diller Canyon, or straight up the ridge, from the very end of the NF 41N86 road in the "Pines Plantation" slope area? Thanks again!
