WEDNESDAY  1/1 breakfast  & dinner provided by Barr camp staff, Optional Pikes Peak Climb return to Barr camp-12/3900.  leave 8am for summit, return 4pm. Summiting is not guaranteed. Summitting is dependent upon weather and how participants feel after starting out. Summit trip is 2 parts, -part 1 goes up 3 mi to tree line & A frame. Discussion will be had to continue or not to summit. Final 3 mi,  leader may take winter route, or regular Barr trail thus 2-3 mi to summit. Typiical round trip time is 8 hr, with several hours above tree line. Summit house may/may not be open.



For those that do not want to summit, Linda will take people on a day hike on new Lake Moraine trail that starts from Barr camp. -This new trail will be "exploratory". Leader has been told it is a well marked trail.
