I have tried to post a new "Mountain/Rock" page to the Branderberger Alpen page.
My first try, I tried to cut and paste some text into the "Overview" but there is no "Paste" option. I tried to remember the keyboard shortcut but was thrown out of SP (Maybe I got that wrong!)
Second/ Third etc.... I just filled in the opening page descriptions and tried to submit. When I click the "Submit" button the view changes to HTML language and only allows me to return to the previous page.
Still no "Paste" option.
The new page is not saved (as fas as I can see).
Am I doing something wrong or is it just not working?.
For what it's worth.... I was fine with the recent editor!

FWIW, I found COR to be more of a psychological hurdle than anything else. Once I got up on the rock and started going over the top of the ridge, it was quite honestly a lot of fun. Borah and Kings were #42 and #43 for me and it was during that trip that I really started to believe I had a shot at all 50.

But still, you don’t know exactly how you are going to react to exposure like that until you’re faced with it. So it’ll be a big worry fest until you actually get there.

Have fun on Sugarloaf and Plateau as well. The Catskills can get a bit scrambley in places but you never really feel that same sense of exposure because of the heavy tree cover.

Okay, so there isn't a ton of info on this route (for obvious reasons). To give you a back story, I've climbed Torreys via Kelso ridge in the winter. Def a class three. Has anyone attempted (or have been successful) along the ridge from Grizzly D along the Black Mountain ridge to Lenawee?

I'm most interested in summiting Black Mountain and can then return to Grizzly (and eventually Loveland Pass). Having said that, within this TR, they bust out some rope on their way to the top of Black. IMHO it looks very similar to Kelso (which is a class 3.5...no rope needed). Can anyone shed some light?

Here is the TR: https://www.summitpost.org/the-a-basin- ... ments_logs

That's odd. I just tried updating the forum permissions. Let me know if you can post in there now.

Thanks! If you click on "ZeeJay" and then scroll down to "My Images" and then click on "Most Recent" you will see more pictures. The first one you see is not from that trip, but the next 23 are. I'll let you know when I get a trip report up.

We climbed Mt. Frey as you were posting this but did rely on locals to set ropes. It is doable alpine style but the number of deaths on this mountain should keep you humble and sober. Here it the report a year later which should give you clear idea of route. http://trips.sl6598.com/2017/EN/

@Scott, I'm expecting there to be some snow along the way, but hopeful that I don't encounter really deep stuff. General question: in a "wet" year, how much of the Traverse would you expect to be under snow in early December.

Snowfall at higher elevations in the area is extremely variable, more so than most areas, so it is hard to say. Last January there was no snow on that route. One Thanksgiving we were down there, the West Rim was covered with 3-5 feet of snow. It's too early to tell how much of the route will be under snow. Expect anything from 0-100% of the route being under snow, but it would be rare for the lower elevation of Zion Canyon to have much snow just as it would be rare for the elevations above 7000 feet to have none. I'd say there is probably a 50/50 chance of having a foot or more snow at the higher elevations of that route.

As mentioned though, the road to the northern trailhead is closed and you can't walk it. Have you checked if it will be open yet? The Kolob Terrace Road is also usually closed in December, so it likely won't be an alternative.

A new feature to upload multiple images all at the same time has (finally) been added to SummitPost. The tool can be accessed here:

The main upload image process was altered too, as this feature was added, to check the EXIF data and rotate the image if it is incorrectly rotated and also get latitude and longitude coordinates from the image and use them if none are specified in the form.

If you have a page created and would like to add multiple images to it at the same time, look for the "Add Multiple Images" link in the left sidebar of the page. All images uploaded in that session will automatically inherit the latitude and longitude of the page, along with being attached to that page.

This bulk image uploading tool has been tested but not exceptionally thoroughly. Please post any bugs related to this tool here. Thanks!

First 5-10 minutes are for soaking up the views and taking photos. Then I eat lunch or snack and read map to find out what I am looking at (10-15 minutes). Then a seflie or two. If the descent is challenging, I rest a bit more (10 minutes) before going down.
