Bob Burd's California Travels

Last Updated: Sun May 29 20:40:56 2016

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. :-)

Rainbow Direct, definitely something I'd like to do someday. I've hiked with Courtney a couple times before and also enjoyed the casual banter about music. I was a rappelling newbie when we hiked so I'm glad he enjoyed having less focus on the well-being of his companions.

Courtney will be the first to tell you his guidebooks are purposefully vague, so that "Huh" regarding the fixed rope surprises me not at all.
