Priority will be given to those that I have done previous trips with and believe have the experience needed for this trip. 

This trip is subject to change destinations based on conditions. Other options include Arapahoe Traverse, West Ridge of Quandary, and Sawtooth on Bierstadt/Evans. 

We will backpack in on Saturday, and start hiking early Sunday morning and return to Denver Sunday night.

Participants will be expected to participate in route finding. There will most likely be some "homework" to complete before the trip. Those that do not complete the homework within the given timeframe will be removed from the trip. Everyone must be very comfortable with exposure and route finding. 

Exploratory - The leader has not done this hike, but has done extensive research into the route.

Disclaimer - By signing up for this trip you agree to have your email shared with other participants on the trip.


In order to receive the passcode all questions below must be answered, if questions are not answered you will not be allowed on the trip.

1) Previous class 4 and route finding experience (be specific with route/peak names)

2) Last 5 trips above 12,000 ft. with dates and roundtrip times
