Details

This trip is a LONG DIFFICULT C. Requires good fitness. Please come prepared for a long day with lots of distance and elevation gain! We will maintain a moderate (but not fast) pace throughout.



If you are not a C/D hiker, please shoot me an email at chip.furlong@gmail.com and let me know what you've been climbing this summer.



NOTE: If you need a D hiker classification, it will also qualify as an EASY D.



A beautiful, challenging hike with some interesting rock formations on the summit plateau. We will drive to the Ute Creek Trailhead south of Jefferson. The summit requires some easy scrambling.



No special gear required, but I recommend bringing the 10 Essentials, extra energy snacks and at least 3 liters of water. This could be a long day!




Notes

Optional social stop after the hike.
