This will be a long day trip....probably in the neigborhod of 13 hours. 

Due to the difficult nature of this trip with a big vertical gain, please call or email first to discuss your ability, skills, and gear. Thanks. Sorry, this is not for people new to snow climbs on 14ers or first-timers using crampons and an ice axe.

 



Details

More details about where to meet for carpools, etc. will come next week...the week of the climb.




Notes

Sorry to announce that I came down with a yukky chest cold that has now traveled into my head. These things usually run their course in about 7 days...which isn't enough time for me to get back to normal before this climb. Plus, the forecast is crappy with another snow storm coming in at the exact time we were plannig to do this climb. So, this is going to be pushed back to another date. Look for Kit Carson to show up on the calendar again in the future.
