Details

An easy warm up for this summer's 14er season and an introduction to easy scrambling and rock travel.  We'll ascend the Spaulding East Ridge and cross above the Sunrise Couloir to the Evans West Ridge.   We will follow rock cairns the last mile to the summit where the tourists be amazed at how cool we are.  We will rapidly descend the Northeast Face Route to just south of Summit Lake.  Be prepared to share the Mt. Evans road fee with your driver.


Notes

If time, we'll check out a bakery in Idaho Springs after our triumph.
