Flexible on the dates and looking for someone to do a key swap with or to hike together and shuttle vehicles on the Kettle Crest Trail north section ( http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/kettle-crest-north ). It is 30 miles one-way, and the distance between trailheads is around 50-miles. I would ideally like to do this as a two-night backpacking trip, but would also be open to doing this as a one-nighter with two long days.
Did you ever find a hiking partner for the Kettle Crest? A few of the trailheads are within half an hour of my house, so I hike and snowshoe it year around. As of Dec 1, I can still get my Jeep (with chains) to the Profanity Peak Trailhead. From there, it's a good long day hike to either Boulder or Sherman Pass.
-------------- I may be old, but at least I'm slow.
I made it up back in September, but only in the general area of Columbia Mountain and a bit further up the trail. A friend and I just had one car and both ended up getting sick with head colds on that trip, so needless to say we didn't put in a lot of miles. Spent two nights at the lookout. Brilliant sunrises and sunsets!
I wouldn't be back this winter, as much as I would like to, but would be interested in doing this trip in June/July/whenever conditions allow.
I'll send you a PM sometime and see if we can work something out. Thanks for the reply!
