Proceed WB NCAR trail to S. Mesa Trail to WB Fern Canyon and ascend the steep, challenging route to Bear Peak at 8,461' and continue to S. Boulder Peak at 8,549'. Let's regroup, reassess and strategize as to turning back OR contin uing back to the Bear Peak West Ridge Trail to Green Mountain at 8,144'. We'll make a final assessment of fitness, stamina, strength and endurance before returning directly to NCAR in a direct or indirect circuit. This hike will provide a challenge to ascend Winter routes, enduring cold, sub-freezing and windy conditions. As a matter of course, the day will expose all participants to snow, sleet, wind and other challenges. You must possess and know how to use traction devices, multi-layer clothing system, fire starting and bivvy gear, in the event of extreme weather conditions.
