Details

The Pikes Peak Group celebrates 100 years on May 5th! This snow climb is part of the celebration weekend.



Conditions will dictate which couloir we climb, I'm thinking Savage Couloir, but we could also do Lincoln North Face, Democrat North Face, or Dragon's Tail Couloir. We will leave the Springs around 2-3am to start hiking before sunrise. We may also drive out friday night and sleep at the trailhead depending on which climb we do.



snowshoes, crampons, ixe axe, a second tool, and avalanche gear are required. Skis/Splitboards with skins will also be allowed depending on the route



You must have completed the BMS Snow Climbing Class and Avalanche Level 1, as well as have past expereience climbing couloirs as this will be a more challenging climb.



Priority will be given to Pikes Peak Group members first, contact the leader with your snow climbing history for registration access code.
