Location

We will depart the Staples office supply store in Conifer at 5:00am.

As you drive south on US 285, you will pass Aspen Park (there is a King Soopers there), then another few miles to Conifer. At the Sinclair/Stinker gas station turn right off 285, then a left at the stoplight. We will group up at the 285 side of the Staples parking lot just before the Dutch Brothers drive-through coffee shop. As a landmark I have a bright yellow Nissan Xterra.

Details

There are restroom facilities at the TH.

This will be a very challenging hike. As we do our ascent we will be off-trail, perhaps having to do a bit of trial and error routefinding, while hiking up very steep terrain over loose and unstable talus.

This trip will not be for the faint of heart. We must travel at a deliberate and unrelenting pace in order to get ahead of any weather that may come up that afternoon. Under the old CMC classification this would have been a Moderate D hike.

Weather permitting, we may have a short celebratory picnic back at the trailhead. With this in mind consider bringing a snack, beverage, and folding chair. Also the option to stop at the SnowPack Taproom just south of Conifer.

Leader will send out a detailed trip write-up, including GPX file, prior to departure day.

Finally, please monitor your email and text messages that morning in case the trip needs to be rescheduled due to weather.
