UPDATE: We will meet at the Safeway at Colorado Ave. and 31st Street at 6:00am so we can carpool and share gas costs.



Plan for snowy/windy white-out conditions. Bring multiple layers and the ability to cover all skin. Snowshoes and microspikes will be useful. 



This trip report will give you and idea of what to expect conditions-wise:

This trip report can give you and idea of mileage and times. (I would expect our times to be somewhat slower.)

We will decide at Red Mountain C whether we want to go over for Red Peak A, the unranked 13er in the neighborhood.




Notes

All six of us made it to the summit of Hoosier Ridge. Four of us went on to summit Red Mountain C. This is a long hike...expecially in snow and especially when one person forgets snowshoes and is postholing, and especially when two people haven't been to the highcountry in 6 months!

We also encountered complete white out conditions on the return. Difficult navigation....but we were safe and successful!

 




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
