Details

Let's get the blood moving and get up where the air is thin. Great views of the back side of Pikes Peak and the Sangre de Cristos from this 12K knob on the SW side of Pikes Peak. If we get snow this will be a snowshoe. If not, bring the spikes since there will be ice and snow in the shade and in the trees. We'll watch the weather but we could easily get sub-zero windchill at the top so pack accordingly. Even if this is more hike than snowshoe it will be strenuous, in cold air and at altitude so get some training in beforehand. Will reschedule this for March 3 or 4 if snow or bitter cold force a postponement. The leader plans on doing a reccie soon to confirm the route and mileage and check the conditions, so stay tuned for updates.
