    MdO - Hazard Peak climb times comparison

    First, thanks to the CCCMB guys for their great trail work. I especially love not having to dodge the poison oak that was growing up in the middle of the trails (my wife thanks you too )

    I achieved my personal best time for climbing Hazard peak, 43min from parking to lot to top, no warm up. I'm 230lbs on a 28lbs Yeti rig. I'm sure it's not a great time, but I'm curious what some of you out there are climbing it in.

    Trying to set a goal to work up to.

    mmmm...middle chainring, so like 32-34 most the way. I did drop to the granny gear to make the final spin to the top after the tight right hander, but I resisted the urge to use granny the rest of the time.

    I was out there today. I made it up to the top in about 33 minutes. I agree on the trail work too. It looks great out there. The pavers are a great addition.

    That is fast my best on a 45# freeride sled is just under 30 but my friend on a newer stumpy consistently goes near 22 and he's 62 years old with 2 titanium knees, I think its the knees! We'll be hitting it today again even as its getting very loose, need some rain!

    The high pressure ridge responsible for the nice weather this
    week breaks down on Friday and Saturday with increasing clouds
    expected on Saturday.

    A chance for rain is forecast on Sunday night and into next
    Monday. There could be a shift to a wet pattern by next week.

    Mdo was dusty but fast today. HPT 38 then 32, then East B tight and fast into islay, had a great 20 in under 3 hr.

    PRETTY ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN NEXT WEEK. ON
    SUNDAY, THE MODELS ARE NOW IN DECENT AGREEMENT SHOWING THE COLD
    UPPER LOW ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE OMEGA BLOCK ACTUALLY RETROGRADING
    OFFSHORE. THE GFS HAD EARLIER INDICATED THIS LOW DROPPING SOUTH INTO
    THE GREAT BASIN SO MODEL AGREEMENT HAS IMPROVED DRAMATICALLY. BUT
    THIS ACTUALLY SLOWS THE ARRIVAL OF THE MOISTURE INTO OUR AREA, SO IT
    NOW APPEARS THAT THE MAJORITY OF SUNDAY WILL REMAIN DRY. HOWEVER,
    HEIGHTS WILL BE FALLING PRETTY RAPIDLY, ALLOWING THE MARINE
    INVERSION TO DEEPEN SIGNIFICANTLY, PERHAPS SIMILAR TO TODAY`S LEVEL.
    THUS, A COOL AND CLOUDY DAY EXPECTED SUNDAY WITH JUST PARTIAL
    AFTERNOON CLEARING AT BEST.

    ALL MODELS NOW ON BOARD WITH THE FIRST SHOT OF RAIN ARRIVING INTO
    THE AREA EITHER SUNDAY NIGHT OR MONDAY MORNING. THE CANADIAN AND THE
    ECMWF SHOW THE SURFACE LOW ABOUT 300 MILES NORTHWEST OF SFO 12Z MON
    WITH A GOOD WARM FRONTAL PATTERN SETTING UP OVER SO CAL. THIS
    PATTERN TYPICALLY PRODUCES A STEADY, BUT MOSTLY LIGHT RAIN FOR OUR
    AREA, THOUGH IT REMAINS TO BE SEE HOW MUCH SOUTHERLY FLOW SETS UP TO
    POSSIBLY ENHANCE THE RAIN ALONG THE MOUNTAIN SLOPES.

    MODELS START TO DIVERGE TUE, THOUGH IT`S MAINLY THE GFS THAT IS THE
    OUTLIER HERE SHOWING THAT UPPER LOW ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE OMEGA
    BLOCK DROPPING SOUTH INTO THE GREAT BASIN AND PUSHING THE MOISTURE
    SOUTH OF THE AREA AND USHERING IN A LOT OF COLD AIR. FOR NOW HAVE
    DECIDED TO IGNORE THE GFS AND WENT WITH THE EC/CANADIAN SOLUTION.
    THIS SOLUTION MAINTAINS A RELATIVELY WARM, MOIST FLOW OF AIR ACROSS
    THE AREA TUE WITH PERIODS OF RAIN CONTINUING, AGAIN MOSTLY ON THE
    LIGHTER SIDE WITH THE CAVEAT THAT IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN HOW MUCH
    SOUTHERLY FLOW SETS UP.

    NOT TOO MUCH CHANGE ON WED, THOUGH IF THERE IS A BREAK IN THE WET
    WEATHER NEXT WEEK WED WILL LIKELY BE THE DAY WE SEE THE LEAST AMOUNT
    OF PRECIP. ALTHOUGH THURSDAY IS BEYOND THE CURRENT FORECAST CYCLE,
    THAT COULD BE THE WETTEST DAY NEXT WEEK AS THE ECMWF SHOWS THE BEST
    MOISTURE/SOUTHERLY FLOW COUPLING THAT COULD GENERATE HEAVIER RAIN.
