Location

This hike will be open to anyone capable of at least 3,000 feet of elevation gain and at least 10 miles or more of round-trip travel above timberline. However, I am encouraging my Orizaba March 1st participants to join in as this will be the easiest of the conditioning hikes I will be leading before our departure to Mexico.

We'll be going up the Mount Evans Road from Echo Lake as far as avalanche safety permits. We may be able to skirt questionable areas but will not take excessive risks as our main goal will be a slow, but steady workout at altitude while avoiding avalanche hazards.

Details

Be prepared for high winds, winter conditions, and slippery surfaces. Bring snowshoes,

microspikes, and plenty of layers to protect yourself from the cold. Will make a restaurant

stop, afterwards, if the group is interested.



Notes

Be prepared for winter conditions, ice, and wind.

This hike is only open to anyone who is capable of at least 3,000 feet of elevation gain (starting out

at high altitude) and ten miles (or more) round-trip.

I can sign people off for a "C" hike depending how far up we make it.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
