    4/24 – back from vacation. Looks like it may be a washout but if not we’re going to try to finish the reroute on upper Stony Ridge/Whitehorse. Meet at Echo Lake at 5:30 pm (if possible). If you’re running late, ride through Boulder Ridge in Hales Location and up Stony Ridge as if summiting Whitehorse. Call me if you have questions 496-5853. Steady rain cancels.

    4/3/12: back up on Whitehorse to (hopefully) finish up the Stony Ridge reroute. Meet at Echo Lake for van ride to Hale’s Location and HIKE in with tools (that Bob trailer was heavy and slow last week). If you are later than 5:30 you will need to ride in on your own. If possible please be ready to roll at Echo Lake by 5:25 as daylight is limited. Call me with questions.

  48. radair Says:

    2012 is starting early! For Tuesday, March 27th, let’s kick off the year with a short reroute on upper Stony Ridge. Meet at Echo Lake at 5 pm (if possible). If you’re running late, ride through Boulder Ridge in Hales Location and up Stony Ridge as if summiting Whitehorse. The reroute will be a rideable climbing variation to bypass the steep slab hike-a-bike. Call me if you have questions 496-5853
