Details

This is a climb for those needing a "D" classification from a "C".  We will meet at parking lot in Boulder for drive to TH and hike to reserved campsite at Battle Mountain campsite in Rocky Mountain Natioanl Park.  Hard-sided carry-in/carry-out bear-resistant food contanier is required. We will do an alpine start at 4 am to reach Keyhole between 7-8 am for final ascent to the summit.  We hope to summit by 11 am.  Helmets and microspikes required beyond Keyhole.  Raingear and cold weather gear are required as well as the usual 10 essentials and at least 3 liters of water.  This trip has class 3 exposure in several places beyond the Keyhole.  We will break camp in the morning and stash our overnight gear at the campsite, since the site needs to be available for the next group by noon.



If you are not reasonably fit, please do not attempt this climb as it is at least a 12 hour day. 



This trip may be cancelled due to inclement weather before or during the climb based on the leader's discretion.



Call Leader for Passcode to register.
