Details

We'll meet at the Hampden & Wadsworth Park & Ride at 10 am.

We'll carpool down to Yankee Boy Basin just outside of Ouray.

We'll car camp as close to the trailhead as we can and get an early start on Monday morning. We'll climb Teakettle, Coffeepot & Potosi, hopefully all in one day.

Our first priority will be Teakettle. If we can't climb all 3 in one day, then we'll try to do the remaining peak or peaks the next day.

Weather and snow conditions will be a major consideration.

We will be bringing a rope, harnesses, some rock gear, helmets, ice axe, and crampons.

We will expect to rock climb  towards the top of Teakettle, I'll lead and then we will all rappel off the top of Teakettle.

We'll have a mandatory rock climbing day in Eldorado Canyon a few weeks before the trip so that everyone is current on belaying and rappelling.
