Details

For those coming from Colorado Springs, we will meet at 4:30am at the Monument Park N Ride on the east side of I-25 just north of Hwy 105. 



For those coming from Denver, I'll email the names of other partners so you all can arrange a carpool that works for those up there. (Done...please contact trip leader if you did not receive the email.)



Let's ALL meet at the Twin Forks Park N Ride (on Hwy 285 about 5 miles west of C-470) at 6:00am.

We will aim to start hiking shortly after 7:00am.



With the new cold front and snow coming in on Thursday, plan on a low of 7 degrees and a high of 27 degrees up high.



 




Notes

It's always good to bring a helmet even on the easier climbs.

With winter-ish conditions it's time to start bringing microspikes and axe on every climb.

Please bring some gas money to share with the drivers. 

We will probably stop in Bailey, CO after the climb for lunch.
