Details

From the Longs Peak trailhead, hike 3.1 miles to Chasm Junction on Mills Moraine. Take left branch and continue past Columbine Falls towards the shelter below Chasm Lake. From here, climb a steep, Class 3 gulley/cliff system to The Loft. Ascend over Class 2 boulders and talus to the west summit of Mount Meeker.

Given favorable weather and time, we will scramble over the exposed "knife edge" of Meeker, bordering Class 4. Descending to the west summit and back down to the Meeker Basin via the Northeast Ridge will complete the North Tour de Meeker. This strenuous trip offers great views in spectacular terrain. 

Participants must have experience scrambling in exposed, alpine environments and be prepared for a long, strenuous day. Helmets are strongly recommended as there can be loose rock heading up to the Loft. Register in advance with leader, Clare Reda.
