Details

We will meet at the Safeway on Colorado Ave. at 7:00am Saturday morning. From there, we will carpool to Hoosier Pass.



 



Snowshoes or skiis probably needed for floatation. Crampons or microspikes needed for traction. Ice axe required for the ridge. 



Dress for the weather! The NOAA forecast is a low of 17 and a high of 26. Northwest wind between 8-17 mph.



Expect/plan to be above 13k for 4 hours.



Looking forward to a great day above treeline!




Notes

It turned out to be just Kristen and me on this one. But we were successful. Made it to the summit in 4 hours. Spent a 1/2 on the summit and then made it down in 2 hours....partly cuz we had skis stashed at 13,100'!
