Let's do all four of the major ridge traverses in one season.
1. Crestones
2. Wilson El Diente
3. Little Bear Blanca
4. Bells

We will drive up early Saturday and hike the heinous Lake Como road that I have vowed multiple times that I would never do again. We will camp overnight at Lake Como. Bring something to hang your bag as bears are active. Also, bring DEET as the mosquitoes are ridiculous. We will climb early in the morning on Sunday at look to summit little bear around 7am. The traverse is only a mile but will take forever. Travel along the ridge is tedious and dangerous. Every hold must be tested before being weighted. Once we make our way over to Blanca we will head down the Std route back to our campsite and hike out. It's a long day!

Participants who sign up for multiple or all four trips will have priority for signing up for these trips. If you are a peak bagger and lack skills and confidence to move quickly over technical terrain, do not bother signing up for these trips. I have no intention of having 20hr epic days just because we are waiting on a slow person trying to check a box. Individuals who I don't know personally or know a common friend or have a BMS/HAMS Director vouch for ones movement on technical terrain and all day performance, we will need to assess ones training regimen and likely go on a climb together before the climbs start.
