Details

From Loveland Pass, follow the rocky, windswept ridge to the summit.   Bring snow shoes, microspikes and an ice axe. This trip is a conditioning hike for HAMS Adventure Travel participants registered to Orizaba-1 or Orizaba-2 trips in January & March.  Leader will open roster to anyone to register on or about December 9th, if not full.   NOTE - as of Monday Dec 9th trip is FULL, have an overflow already...


Notes


Dress warm, will go unless full-on blizzard. This hike is not just conditioning, but preparing for rough weather and adjusting our clothing and gear for an 18,475' peak. Likely to stop at Tommyknockers in Idaho Springs after for liquid nourishment.
