Details

This is part of the famous Boulder Traverse (5 peaks 6,300' vertical). Today we will do 3 of 5 peaks near Boulder: Mt.Sanitas 6823', Flagstaff Mtn 7283' and Green Mountain 8144'. (The other peaks are Bear Mtn and S. Boulder Peak which we won't do on this trip but I plan to do the entire traverse in the spring).  Bring spikes and 10 essentials. There will likely be snow or ice on the trails.



I have rated this as a difficult C because of the vertical and the snow/ice. If the weather looks poor, I may re-schedule. Stop in Boulder for a social hour after.



We start east of Sanitas and hike to Green Mtn and descend via Gregory Canyon. We will leave one car at Gregory Canyon or Chautaugau Park where we will have to pay a fee.
